Whenever I can, I like to make running part of my workday. Understandably, this doesn’t happen often.
But I did have had this opportunity on Tuesday, when I went for a four-mile run at Pemberton Historical Park, taking plenty of pictures along the way.
I think I’ve only gotten to do a run at work one other time, in my previous job as a reporter: Very short stints during a photo shoot for a story about trails I’d written. My run on Tuesday also related to a trail piece I was working on, this time at my new job as assistant director of marketing and public relations for Wicomico County Recreation, Parks & Tourism.
I’ve run on the Pemberton Historical Park trails before, but this was my first time seeing the new signs. Since I was working, I decided to go at a slow pace (very slow… I wasn’t stopping my watch too much and because of all my stopping, my first mile clocked in at 18-something) and take lots of photos, live-tweet and post to Instagram. I even did my first Facebook live video.
I’d definitely recommend checking out the trails at Pemberton Historical Park, which is located at 5561 Plantation Lane in Salisbury. You may even want to take a trip out there for National Trails Day on Saturday, June 4.
