Not all my vacations are race-cations. I do go on a vacation where there is no race and my family or friends are not runners.
The photos below were taken during a vacation with my tennis friends where I ran almost everyday.
Here’s FIVE Tips to use if you are hoping to run during a vacation:
Bring clothes for all weather conditions.
Some winter vacations may have 80 degree temps and but many could have freezing temps!!
2.Schedule your runs.
If you leave it to chance, it won’t happen.
I often have to run in my tennis clothes
and then play tennis in my running shoes!
Sometimes other persons’ needs or desires will come before your running.
I definitely have to be more flexible when traveling with my hubby. (Maybe that’s why we don’t travel together often lol).
4.Find a scenic route.
Pretty views make all the difference.
Sunrises are my particular favorite.
5.Lower your expectations.
Distance & speed goals will probably not happen.
Just RUN for FUN.
Bonus Tip. (Thanks to Erica for reminding me about this) If you are not familiar with the area, sign up for a Running Tour
It’s the best way to see the city and get your running done at the same time.
or ask for recommendations (from the hotel concierge or local running store) for a safe route to run.
Happy Running! Do you run when you go on vacation? Any tips to add? Please share.
