Virginia is for Lovers; and runners.

The iconic Virginia L O V E letters are currently on display in a nearby neighborhood until June 1.  These letters travel around our beautiful commonwealth, and we are lucky enough to have them visiting our area for ten days!

From the Virginia Is For Lovers‘ website:

We’re out to prove that “love is at the heart of every Virginia vacation” in a BIG way by having giant “LOVE” artworks pop up in many different and unexpected places across Virginia.



As soon as I learned that LOVEworks would be on display nearby, I set up a LOVE run for our MRTT chapter.  We met at 5:30 this morning for a run around a new-to-us neighborhood.  We didn’t have a route pre-planned so we made a big loop around the main town-center. 

Being ones to never miss a photo-opt, we stopped in front of the neighborhood’s main entrance waterfalls for about two seconds before continuing on our run.


After completing our 3.5-mile loop, we stopped at the LOVEworks, and took advantage of taking several fun photos. 

First was the LOVE pose…


And then 1, 2, 3…


…the LOVE jump!


And no LOVE run is complete without a LOVE selfie!


Today’s little destination run was so fun; well, except for when I stepped off of the curb and twisted my foot about three miles into the run – but that’s a story for another day.
