Ellie has officially had enough of our loops around the neighborhood—and I can't say I blame her. It does get a little repetitive running the same routes, or at least the same group of streets, over and over again. It got so bad last week, we had to sprint to a new location, just to avoid ruining the whole night's run. (Ellie has admitted to feeling a little melodramatic about this bit, but it seemed like a serious dilemma at the time.)
The past couple of runs, we've altered our route. Instead of running through the Olmsted Parkway system, we changed it up and went straight toward Hoyt Lake. Once there, we curve around and up a decent hill, across a looping pedestrian bridge over a highway, and into a beautiful section of Buffalo. This new neighborhood (at least new to us), was once the center of the Buffalo Pan-American Exposition of 1901. Our apartment is actually a Pan-Am 1901 building that was used to house visitors to the exposition.
