This is my morning run path. Financed, built, and maintained by the municipal government of Puebla, it’s a 10Km trail made of track-like surface that winds along a muddy, rapidly-flowing (given this is the rainy season) river and is bordered by a several park-like areas, look-out structures, an area with exercise equipment, small stations staffed by policemen during peak hours, and even an orchid/bromeliad garden! The trail is used by everyone: housewives out for their am exercise, marathon runners-in-training, workers out for morning exercise before heading to the office, people walking their dogs (german shepherds, pit bulls, scotties, beagles and chihuahuas seem like especially popular breeds), joggers, families on bikes… On weekends, there are large groups that gather for runs and walks, and even a yoga class that takes place trail-side. Big up for publicly-funded recreation space!
