High-Fiving Palm Trees

Running, and other aspect of my life.

Why High-fiving Palm Trees?

on May 21, 2012

My Friendly Palm Trees

The reason for the name is, because when I was training for the Virgin London Marathon earlier this year, I spent most of the time in Spain.  One of my favourite routes for running was along the side of the River Segura, from Rojales to the sea at Guadarmar del Segura (5 miles there 5 miles back).  The pathway has been renovated in recent years and planted out with small palm trees whose palms reach out at the side of the path like friendly hands waving at you. SO, as I ran along, I used to  high-five them to keep myself amused.

Fortunately not many people use the pathways and so my bizarre behaviour was rarely witnessed.
