Our 9-MIle Journey to Fitness Part 3 - Downtown Weirton

Even though we have  walked around in downtown Weirton for several occassions, there are parts also that we  have nevered  explored  yet.  Just like the Millsop Community Center, we have never walked  on the other side of it so we never knew that the  wall there has a neat design.  They designed the brick like the Steel Mill.    See what we are mssing by driving all the time? 
Beside the  train track is  the water treatment facitlity.  It stinks   but the sound of water   somehow relaxes you when you walk beside the facility.  It's one of those weird places where you want to  hurry up and pass it because it stinks but when you are so tired, you want to slow down and enjoy the  relaxing sound of the water.
I told my husband that it would be neat to walk beside the train track but he said that he isnot sure if people is allowed there.  He is also very cautious when the kids are around.
Approaching the Muinicpal Plaza building.  The place where you take your driving test, renew license and  other stuff.
See the boys went ahead of us  so I just  took pictures of my willing subject, lol. She even jumped for me, yay!  By this time, we have walked 3 miles already and look hhow much energy she still have .
We finally caught up with the boys, they were waiting for us at the bench.  So this was our  short   stop.
We took some phots in front of the Millsop Community Center since we never had  a picture there.
Our son keep asking "Do we really have tio take pictures?" It cracks me but I told him that  we never did this  before so  I wanted to really document it.  I told him thathe would appreciate  these photos  later on.
Here's a reflection photo f us to end this part 3  post of ourjourney.  The part 4 will be the climb to Marland Heights hill.  You can check the Part One and Part Two of our 9-mile journey.  Tune in and thank you for being part of our journey.

  2. He must be getting big because he doesn't want his photos taken. They didn't seem to mind the 9 mile walk. They didn't look tired and even managed to smile in the photos.

  5. Wow, nine miles is quite an accomplishment! You saw so many neat things along the way though, so that must have made it go by faster. Still, wow, 9 miles!

  7. In a city like that, 9 miles probably felt more like 3. I love the greenery there, and they layout is very nice.

  17. When we went to Rome last fall we walked everywhere we went. I imagine we did 12 miles a day. But it was so beautiful and so worth it. We do miss a lot of cool things by driving everywhere.
