A new way to see Charlotte

Via foot.

I can’t stop thinking about how much of it I will see during my marathon this weekend. And how amazingly close things start to seem when you travel on your own two legs.

So, if you know anything about Charlotte, do me a favor and take a good look at this map. Can you believe how much of the Queen City the course covers?

It will be a beautiful run, through Uptown and Meyers Park and NoDa and Plaza Midwood. Too bad I’m not one to take in the scenes while I’m running – I’m usually too busy looking at the sidewalk to make sure I don’t trip!
