Over the weekend, my family took a trip to my in-law’s beach house near Ocean City, MD. We had a great time and I got a chance to run early one morning. I have run this course before—down the blacktop road, then on a sandy path by the water, and then back on a blacktop road to the house. It is a short course, about three miles. I have decided this is my favorite place to run. The sandy area is challenging, while the blacktop is a good place to warm up and cool down. The scenery the entire time is so peaceful and really motivating. I really love running by the water. Yesterday morning was the most enjoyable run I have ever had.
This got me thinking, where is my favorite place to run? I do the majority of my running on the tread mill at the gym late in the evening after my kids are in bed. I don’t hate running on the treadmill, but I don’t love it either. I love running outside. I also run on a path around my neighborhood. The path is nice, but full of really steep hills, which I don’t enjoy. The path is a great place to run, but not work on time. It does not simulate most normal race terrain, but the hills are a great workout.
Where is your favorite place to run? Do you run inside or outside? What time of day?
