Alberta Morning Run

I took this picture on Saturday morning. It's not the best, but it's hard taking a photo with little light...

I love my Saturday morning runs on Alberta.
I'm typically the only person out on the street. There's no cars. I can run down the middle of the street if I'd like.

I can see all the cooks, baristas, prepping their cafes and restaurants. I can smell the sent of freshly baked donuts on one block and the smell of carnitas on another block. I can see inside Pine State Biscuits where the cooks are cooking up Reggie plates for people.

In a small cafe there is an older man who is in the same spot, sipping coffee, writing in a journal every week. I run past cute boutiques with the cutest clothes. One in particular always has shoes that I would love to own, but could never afford. I run past art galleries and tiny jewelry shops.

It's one of my most favorite runs all week. It's just me and Alberta and the people who exist in these buildings.
