Toulouse, France – August 29, 2014

I was in Toulouse visiting a friend. This was my first time in this city, so naturally, a great opportunity to run in a new place. Since I stayed very near the Garonne river, I just run straight to the river and then along the path (river walk?) that is on top of the levee, heading in SE direction. I went along the river to the Pont Neuf (New Bridge) where I crossed to the other side. As a side note, “new” bridge was built in the 16th Century.
After crossing the bridge, I tried to just get back to the river walk (assuming that it would be same as it was on the other side). Somehow I must have missed a turn or two, so I ended up going back and forth through small streets trying to maintain the sense of direction and then got completely lost at the Hospital La Grave campus (what a name for a hospital!) (see the trail below). Eventually I found my way back to the river walk which took me to A620 Bridge and back to my starting point.
The total length of this run was 4.9 miles at leisurely 7mph.
