Serena in the Queen City

Here’s a commercial for overpriced headphones featuring tennis superstar Serena Williams. It ran prior to the U.S. Open and the tennis footage is from NYC, but the running scenes were¬†shot in Cincinnati.

 

 

Here’s Serena running in Eden Park, one of the many free city parks that have earned Cincinnati kudos from outdoor buffs and penny-pinchers alike.

Here she’s on the steps that lead to Holy Cross/Immaculata Church in Mt. Adams (photo is fuzzy because the video is fuzzy at that point). Every Good Friday, thousands gather here to ‘pray the steps‘ – a tradition for more than 150 years.

And finally she reaches the summit, with a great view of the downtown Cincinnati skyline.

Nice workout, Serena. Now for a similar view and a refreshing adult beverage, try the patio at City View Tavern.
