To do: Get lost!

I think the best way to get to know a new city/town/whatever is to get lost there.  This afternoon (after a busy morning of looking at a house for rent and then speeding over to Target to stock up) I went for a run during the boys' long nap.  It's a good thing it was the "long" nap - I got totally lost ... and it was awesome. 

I made my way from Belltown in downtown Seattle (picture Union Square crossed with Fisherman's Warf but mini) to Capitol Hill where I ran up and around the hill.  I then made my way over to Eastlake via the freeway (don't worry mom, there was a walkers/bike path), down and around South Lake Union, and back up to Belltown.  All in all, exhausting but perfect. 

More on the running to do and area exploration to do list:
  • Tomorrow I'm going to test the hills of Queen Anne
  • I need to find a good running club - Golden Gate Run Club is a tough one to match, but I'm sure there are some trail run clubs here 
  • One of these days I'll do the 3-mile loop around Green Lake ... problem is it's flat which is relatively boring to me, but will be TONS of fun with the boys

I'd love to hear your thoughts on Seattle running clubs-- I'm starting a position at UW in January and will be sad to leave my current group, but I'm looking forward to new running opportunities up north!
