Lady Bird Lake was known as Town lake for many years and recently was renamed in memory of the late Lady Bird Johnson. The trails around the lake are flooded with runners , bikers, walkers and folks who just want to get outside and enjoy some of our "mostly" great Austin weather. On any weekend beginning late summer, you will see herds of people training for various runs in the fall and leading up to the 3M half marathon and finally the Austin Marathon in Feburary. I have trained for six marathons and one ultra marathon running on these trails and I can think of no better place to train, run, walk or just plain people watch than the loop around Lady Bird Lake! This post originally began as a Wordless Wednesday entry but since it does not fit all the parameters it is now just a post of pictures around my favorite place to run here in Austin, Texas. Enjoy and maybe I will see you on the running trail!
