Day Five of Fitness Cheerleader’s daily writing challenge is to share pictures from your favorite place to workout. When I heard this topic, I instantly thought of Runner’s World feature “Rave Run” each month. Each magazine shows a two page spread picture of a gorgeous running path. I can’t imagine running in snow like this, but I think I could handle this view:
I happen to have several places I am attached to for different reasons. Mostly it comes down to scenery.
This is where I trained for my first half marathon. I spent ungodly amount of time running this trail. I love the old bridges and running by the water never gets old. And would any Columbia park be complete without…
This bridge kicked my butt every time I ran it, but the view from the top was to die for. Before we moved, I finally beat the bridge and ran the entire thing (a little over six miles, but two major inclines) and back to my car.
I usually start at the top of Broadway and run to the park. I love to run past all of the shops that line the downtown street so I can window shop on my run.
Once I enter the park, I run pine lined paved trails. Sometimes, I head to the beaten path (aka: trails) and run through the woods. I have a feeling this park is going to be absolutely beautiful once the leaves change.
So far, I have found wonderful places to run everywhere we have moved. I hope this trend continues at our next station. I hear running on the beach in San Diego is wonderful. Please, please, please Navy!!!
What makes a place “rave run” worthy for you?
