Best Jogging Path Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2008 - Richard Giusti Heart Parcours

You could drive right by the Richard Giusti jogging path without noticing it. It's not much to look at — benches, trees, and a big wall dividing it from the neighboring apartment complex — and it certainly isn't sprawling. But upon closer inspection, you'll find that it's genius. The path is a self-contained, gravel-paved mile that winds around itself like a giant snake. Signs and 20 workout stations are positioned along the way, encouraging joggers to stop and do chin-ups, sit-ups, and any other kind of -ups you can imagine. Strategically planted pine trees shield joggers from the scorching sun. Simple in design, the place offers an easy way to measure your exertion ("You fix dinner — I'm exhausted from the eleven-and-a-quarter miles I ran today!") and stay safely visible at all times. Bonus: Check out an eclectic collection of speed-walking regulars, like the tiny woman who walks with a bag of trail mix and feeds the squirrels. Fitness and entertainment, what could be better?

But they didn't finish the sidewalk. The Gov says no to concrete. They are almost finished with the neighbor policy in my life I will be 43 in Aug. First Mayor 1920ish, the American Legion Post 222 vehemently says they are Fort Lauderdale. WTF! God implant Acomplished Desert Shield on the Block I was born on. Kidnapped by the neighbor cops wife. GSTQ. I hope the Chief is not up there - LOL. The Police department owes me 20$ "etc.etc.etc.etc."
