Running in Suzhou China

I am travelling, so of course I had to go for a local run!

It was a brisk 32 degrees F this morning, so gloves and hat were necessary!

I ran along the river and of course, there are so many local sights to capture all the way.

The river is clearly polluted and there are signs everywhere to not fish or swim.  It was clearly too cold to go swimming IMHO, but every 500M or so, I saw someone fishing.  Not a good idea…

Lots of parks, exercise areas and artwork along the river quite nice.  An interesting montage of modern art and modern electrical production? Every 50 miles in China you see these massive electrical production plants.

Hmmm…did these fresh fish come from the river?  All the markets were opening as I ran by at 7:00 AM.

Breakfast time after a 12K run!  I was the favorite site to see.  A tall westerner in bright orange running clothing while everyone else was bundled up for winter 🙂

Running around the world is always fun.  Some of my other favorite spots:
