Headed out of town for New Year's? Traveling doesn't have to be an excuse for not running. Here are some tips for keeping up your running habit while you're on the road.
- Do research before you leave.
Check out sites such as Map My Run or Run The Planet for running routes at your vacation locale. If you already have a few running routes in hand, you won't feel as apprehensive about running at your destination once you arrive.
- Run in the morning.
If you get your run over with early in the day, it won't interfere with your sightseeing, relaxation, or work-related activities. And if you're traveling to a warm weather climate, getting out early means you won't be running in the heat of the day.
- Stop in the local running shop.
Running specialty shops are a great resource for out-of-town runners. Stop in and ask the salespeople for recommended running routes. They may even host free group runs that you can join.
