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 Patha nice peaceful trail plus you can park in a bakery’s parking lot.


  • Along the Rivers in NYC I have been in NYC quite frequently for work lately.

East River

Hudson River

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



  • Washington Park – a nearby park with a lake and some rolling hills.  It is especially beautiful when the tulips are blooming.


  • 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 Crossingsanother 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 Riveranother 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 October 1. 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.

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

  1. I was at the Crossings for the first time in quite some time. Generally I run in my neighborhood; not so exciting, especially considering I also walk the dogs there. But convenient.

    I definitely do like to mix it up! There’s some sort of rail trail in Ballston Spa I think . . . someday, maybe.
