A Boring Round of 36

Yes, It Was.

 It ?
Right, a loop-run-run around Fukuoka City...
...."following" the Urban Express Way.

As you know from this Blog, most of our running trails are out in country side, the bush, hills or in the wop-wops, 
Great Fun Ks.
But now, for once....Boring.

We had been talking about "doing it" for so long...
... so finally last Monday it was The Day to Go for It.

Hmmmm, we?
No, just me! as most buddy runners were out of town 
and others knew it was gonna be a Boring One .

And so it was!

For 95% It was done under or beside the F.C.U.E.W. 
The loop-run was 36Ks long and i had to share it with other traffic 
AND noise!

But my Asics and i did it.
See here:
A boring picture-story for You!


Just south form our location, i picked-up the F.C.U.E.W. 
This is at Meinohama.

Most NW corner..

Most W point, with a side line of the F.C.U.E.W. going in direction of Itoshima...
Ohhh, i should have gone that way.... 

Most SW point with Imori Yama in the distance....
Ohhh, i should have gone that way.... 

Crossing Muromi River...
There is a nice trail along the river all the way to the mountain range...
Ohhh, know now...

Here goes the F.C.U.E.W. into a tunnel, only for cars.
Bicycles and runners have to zigg-zagg , AND FIND! their way around Fukuoka University grounds.

Told you...boring!

F.C.U.E.W., road, side walk and Shinkansen crossing.

Ha, some excitement.
Luck had it i had to cross the railway line at the right moment.
Always look left, right and once more L & R.
(5 minutes rest time;-} ).

4x pictures spelled with a Big B.

Most SE point....there must be an airport near here...

Took this picture also to show you...what beautiful weather it was. 
Most E point.

Double layer of F.C.U.E.W. with the Hakata Station area connection on the left.


Most NE point.
From here i had to take a "short-cut" as .....

 F.C.U.E.W. in the distance,  
with in front, Fukuoka Boat Race Playgrounds.

F.C.U.E.W. taking the bridge over Nakahama Harbor...hence the earlier short-cut route.

 Back together again.

Once more, we are crossing Muromi River, 
the F.C.U.E.W. run is almost round.
From here i made a dash for Alishan.
And a hot bath.

On the map it looks okay, but know better now.
