Nine Hearty Souls Join Me for a Run Around Jerusalem

by Steve Ray on October 16, 2009

Nine members of the Legatus group pilgrimage joined me today for a one-hour run around the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. It was 90 degrees but we had a great time, got some good exercise and saw a lot of amazing things. What a great way to see a city! Watch the video.

Stay tuned for the Legatus pilgrimage for today. We visited the Mount of Olives, had Mass at Gethsemane, lunch, then toured Mount Zion — Dormition Abbey, the Upper Rome and Peter In Gallicantu (where Peter denied Jesus and where Jesus was imprisoned over Holy Thursday night).

After a few hours rest (when some of us went running together) we drove back into Bethlehem for a Passover Lamb dinner. This video will be up soon.
