TOTR: Summer Runs

with Erika @ MCM Mama Runs,

and Patty @ My no-guilt life

This week’s topic is Summer Scenes From My Run

In the summer, I try to run in different places.  Here are few of my favorites:

  • Peebles Island – there’s a park with a trail and lots of bridges to run over in the surrounding area.




  • Zim Smith Bike Path – a nice peaceful trail plus you can park in a bakery’s parking lot.


  • Central Park in NYC – only ran there once unfortunately




  • Delmar Rail Trail – I run here the most often because it’s nearby.



  • Bolton Landing – I love running here in the summer especially for the views of Lake George (We keep our boat here so I only get to run here in the summer.)




  • The Crossings – another local park where I run.

  • Colonie Town Park – a park and a bike path



  • Corning Bike Path – nice flat route along the Hudson River

  • Chestertown/Brant Lake Along the Schroon River – another summer only spot (My friend has a house here and it’s not far from our boat.)



I am not really training for anything right now. My next half is on September 18. I have just been running short distances. Besides it’s hot and I am enjoying my scenery. But soon I will have to increase those weekend miles. Very soon!

Happy Running! Where is your favorite spot to run in the summertime?

  1. Maybe someday we’ll have to go into NYC again & run on our own in Central Park so I don’t have to try to keep up. 🙂 Or persuade Denise to come with us!

    Unfortunately right now my life is more in shambles than yours — talked with my mom yesterday, and they’re having some medical issues. Nothing life threatening, thankfully, but then when you’re their age . . .
