First up: Inman Park

Streets in Atlanta's Inman Park neighborhoods that I've run so far.

Streets in Atlanta’s Inman Park neighborhoods that I’ve run so far.

Inman Park is where I first lived when I moved back to Atlanta, and though my current residence is no longer in the neighborhood, I still live on the edge of it. I’m frequently in the neighborhood for beers at the Wrecking Bar and the Porter, playing bingo at Jack’s, and dodging dog leashes on the Beltline. What better neighborhood to start with?

I’ve probably run all of these roads before, but for the sake of mapping them out and keeping this project going it makes sense to start from scratch (and I feel like I’m doing the same with my fitness levels).

It shouldn’t be too challenging to finish Inman Park quickly, but it looks like these winding streets will force me to overlap my old paths quite a bit.

The first run was slow, steady, slow, and well, slow. I’ve been out of action since breaking my hand and my last serious run was the Peachtree Road Race on July 4. Time to get back to it.
