Vacation Running

I love running in a new place. Love it. I'm 100% boring when running at home. Same 5 miler, same 11 miler, same old, saaaame old. So getting out of my prescribed routes is always inspiring.

Summer trips are the perfect time to get out and have new running adventures. It's a great way to get to know the place you're visiting. You see more than you would walking or driving. It's the perfect 'take it all in without boredom' pace. Plus you're getting your workout done. Win. Win. Wine. I mean win. But you can also enjoy wine after without any lingering guilt.

Two summers ago I enjoyed a long run at Sun Lakes. Along with many other destination runs getting ready for Chicago. (Cannon Beach, Dash Point...)

Last weekend we headed off to Maryhill State Park where I put in a hilly 5 miler.

first i passed rows of tempting cherry trees

sassy fruit billboards, hello orange!

a church built long ago

all before i climbed the winding hill that brought me here

i headed back down to enjoy more relaxing
and by "relaxing" i mean burgers
