OK so I must say, Knoxville is getting cooler every day. I have a Greenway trail that starts (or you can jump on rather) right outside my apartment. I run it often and it’s definitely a good trail. Very pretty and not too hilly for my average 5k loop. Well, my friend Jaime discovered something even more exciting about the Greenway over the weekend… you can get from our house to the Cedar Bluff shopping center without ever getting on the road. Mind you the shopping center is even on the other side of the interstate! So we went yesterday to redeem our Best Buy gift cards (I think that makes us frequent spenders) and it was awesome. We both stopped at one point and were like, “really? This is Knoxville?” We were surrounded in all directions with grass and trees an skies and it was so beautiful. There were a few bridges over rivers and we went under the interstate…so it was perfect. Very peaceful. I ended up getting a UV lens for my camera, the Ingrid Michaelson CD and The Princess Bride DVD. ALL FOR FREE and I didn’t even use gas to get there! In fact, I got exercise. What a good day. I felt so productive and young again as we worked to save the planet one bike ride at a time.

I read on a site that there are over 41 miles worth of paved greenway in Knoxville alone. Check it out and see if there is one near you: http://www.ci.knoxville.tn.us/greenways/
Just maybe I can get from my house to yours :)
p.s. I updated my Summer 08 page again!
