Bad Gastein to Bad Hofgastein creek path

Another beautiful day with 50 degree warmth and bright sunshine. I threw on the shorts for an easy run in the other direction of the past few days. I found a perfect little dirt path along a creek that took me all the way to Bad Hofgastein. 

This town apparently had the nearest grocery store, so on a whim decided to try to find it. 
I walked in a store that looked like a grocery store from the outside, but I was shooed out because apparently they only sell to hotels, not tourists. ha.
However she told me where to go to find it, and I needed to drive there, but it was only a 1-2 minute drive. I said "ok, danke" and followed her directions. A few minutes later found it, and walked through it but could not really find anything I wanted/needed. So I grabbed a quart of Joya Soya, tater chips and headed back to the hotel. 
Signs make you feel pretty good here. I think it was a 23 minute slow jog, but the sign said it would talk an hour and a half to make it back.
Grocery bag in one hand, phone in the other, I jogged back for a total of 5 miles in about an hour. 
Update on yesterday: Suspicion confirmed. I saw an old lady wearing bright red Hokas walking along the creek path. 
I found this pitcher flowing with water, took a sip, really hot.
