Don’t forget that I’m donating all advertising revenue this month to Delek Hospital for the care of Tibetan refugees! Just click on the ads on both sides and bottom of the blog!
Given that Dharamsala and Mcleod Ganj are nestled at the base of the Himalayan mountains, I wasn’t sure if I could find a nice place to run without heading straight up a mountain. Luckily, running in Mcleod Ganj, India was beautiful and not all about steep inclines! I was able to find a mildly hilly route with scenic views. It was great to train at altitude while in India, even if I will lose all the advantages when I travel for two weeks at sea level.
In honor of my awesome runs in Mcleod Ganj, I present this post – “Does Your Run Have This?”
Does your run have rhododendron trees with scenic valley views?
How about snow capped peaks?
And foraging cattle?
Does your run have friendly dogs who follow you for the majority of your half hour run?
Does you run have lots of tree cover and a monkey that looks like it came out of a horror movie?
How about a red-faced monkey smoking a straw?
And finally, does your run have a quiet little cathedral called St. John in the Wilderness, where you can see the crumbling tombstones of people from as far back as the 1800’s?
And of course, exotic birds!
I’ve finished my month at Delek Hospital and I’m hitting the road. This means I have to say good bye to this lovely run in Mcleod Ganj! *Tear*
Curious where I was? You can find a map of my run here.
