It’s been quite a while since I visited Philadelphia. I think the last time may have been 2008 or so, and so much has changed since then. I was in town to run a 15k last weekend, building upon this year’s goal to get out and run. My dad had called me and requested a cheesesteak from Jim’s so I headed down to South Street to grab his sandwich and take a look around. Despite the inevitable housing growth and new developments springing up in formerly decrepit areas, I was still charmed by the art, the old-fashioned shops, and the small-town vibe that lingered on every corner. I guess I missed it the last time around.
