Washington Post writer takes running tour of Memphis

With our city's reputation as a deep-fried public-health Gomorrah, one might not think of Memphis as a destination for an active vacation. But Memphis couple John and Crissy Lintner have set out to change that reputation, offering guided running tours of Memphis through their Rockin' Running Tours.

The Lintners, and Memphis in general, feature prominently in a Washington Post on the phenomenon of sightjogging or sightrunning. Writer Nancy Trejos took both the Midtown and Downtown tours, and she recommends them as a good way to take in some less-touristy but worthwhile sights like Central Gardens, Cooper-Young and Victorian Village.

Trejos seems to enjoy Memphis; she speaks of being in awe of the Levitt Shell -- where Elvis got his start -- and Galloway United Methodist Church -- where Johnny Cash got his. Kudos to her for wanting to dig deeper and see more of the city.
