For the first time ever I ran two 10ks in a week, and my legs kind of hate me right now.
I listened to the last episode of season 3 of Serial and it was heartbreaking, as was this entire season.
Seagulls in the sunrise:
Not sure if you can see them there, but here are some baby Egyptian geese with their parents:
Seagulls perched on boats, which is pretty unusual, as they normally don’t fly this far up river.
A kingfisher perched on a wire:
And finally some Egyptian geese grazing near the path:
Set out early as we’re in the midst of a heat wave (yes, it’s November) and I didn’t fancy running in the sun.
So dark outside…
A few km in and I saw two herons resting on the water’s edge.
Then came the Egyptian geese:
And a mallard mom with her ducklings:
I love seeing the sun rise over the river:
And over a grumpy night heron:
More Egyptian geese on the way:
A little egret perched on a boat:
The starting line gate for upcoming Tel Aviv Night Run is already up:
A great 10k, my last one before the Night Run race.
Set out while it was still dark outside:
Was rewarded by an awesome sunrise:
And some Egyptian geese:
As well as a pied kingfisher on the hunt:
A white-throated kingfisher was perching on a wire above the boat dock (you can barely see him, I know, but they’re flighty, so I couldn’t get nearer):
I was super surprised to see a ring-necked dove, as they’ve been overrun by common pigeons:
On the way back I saw a gathering of kayaks in the sea, which was a first for me:
A little over 10K on a very interesting run:
Took a new route on today’s 8k run, and was rewarded with a flock of parakeets grazing in the park grass outside the local power station.
You can barely make them out here, but they’re also some parakeets perched on the yellow bush in the middle of the photo.
All in all, a good, relatively fast 8k run in what is becoming better and better running weather.
