Well I have to say that Running along these old brick and cobblestone roads in Utrecht are not exactly ideal. Pretty easy to twist the foot. But one thing here does make it almost priceless. Running in the AM along one of these ancient canals that run through the heart of the city. Complete with boats tied up along the bank. Knowing that these stone steps and the canal has been there for hundreds of years. As the sun comes up on the cobblestone path along the canal with the gondola, you know you are in Europe. Pretty freaken cool.
