Philadelphia Museum of Art

I didn’t actually go into the museum, but I ticked another run off of the list of 10 Runs Every American Must Do.

1.  Golden Gate Bridge – 2012
2.  Central Park – 2001?
3.  Rim Trail – Grand Canyon National Park – TBD
4.  The National Mall, Washington DC – TBD
5.  Rocky Steps, Philadelphia – June 2014
6.  Yosemite Valley – TBD
7.  Lakefront Trail, Chicago – TBD
8.  Diamond Head Road – 2013
9.  The Strand – Los Angeles - TBD
10. Las Vegas Strip – a few times over the years

I started the run from Independence Hall in downtown Philadelphia and ran past several historic attractions that I vaguely remember from my parent’s photos.  The run itself was uneventful, but it was awesome to see the steps, run up and then have a nice triumphant jump at the top.

The fellow I had take the picture does not do the run justice, but it was pretty cool.
