Once again I’ve found myself in the magnificent city of my birth, Philadelphia. I came up to visit both family and friends, satiate my cheese steak craving, and of course do something I have to do every time I visit…run up the art museum steps like Rocky.

Yes, you might think this is a touristy thing to do, but in fact, us Philadelphians do run up the stairs as well. There is nothing more invigorating than waking up early, putting on “Eye of The Tiger” on your ipod, sprinting up the steps, turn around and take in the awe inspiring Philadelphia skyline. It’s awesome.
