One of the great things about Fort Wayne, Indiana, is our trail system; however, you don’t necessarily need to follow those trails to find fun places to run. I’ve set for myself a goal of getting out and exploring the city on foot – trails and all – and as I do, I’ll write about my experiences. The subject of the first post in this series is Concordia Theological Seminary, located at 6600 North Clinton Street.
Not far from where we live is the gorgeous campus of this Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod seminary. Turning off Clinton onto shaded, tree-lined Martin Luther Drive leads you to the expanse of the grounds, a beautiful integration of architecture and nature, part of which is the jewel of the school, Kramer Chapel. Not only can you run along the sidewalks and roads around the campus proper, but there are fields to explore, too, for a little off-road training. The seminary offers a genuinely peaceful place to run and to think, and as a religious institution, it demands our respect as visitors.
So get out there, everyone! It’s time to start “running” this town. Feel free to share your favorite places to run in the Comments section, and I’ll keep posting as my list of favorite places to run in Fort Wayne continues to grow.
