TT: Places I’ve Run A-I


Alphabet Challenge

A-I

Originally Donna from Running to Travel the World posted this challenge.  I completed it twice:

But for this post, I changed it up and chose those PLACES where I’ve raced or run.

Unfortunately, I was never a big traveler. Plus most of my traveling was done BEFORE I became a runner.

But here are those places that I have run or raced in (since 2008):

  • AAsbury Park, NJ. and Albany, NY

I had a friend who lived Asbury Park and I like Bruce Springsteen’s music (that’s where he is from) so I ran a Half Marathon here.

I live near the capital of NYS so obviously have run there often.  My favorite race is held at Christmastime.

  • BBrooklyn, NY and Burlington, VT.

I have raced in Brooklyn many times, all in Prospect Park – 2 half marathons, many 5ks and even a 15k.

But my favorite place to run is over the Brooklyn Bridge!

I’ve visited Burlington twice and stayed with the late blogger/runner AJH.  Each time, I ran a a different leg of the Vermont City Marathon.

miss AJH so much!!!

  • C –  California and Corning, NY

The first trip to California was to race and visit a friend in Santa Clarita (outside LA) and the two other times were trips to Palm Springs.

My first race-cation with my current running group was to run the Wineglass half marathon in Corning, NY.

pre-race activity

  • DDenver, CO

I went to a conference there and signed up for a running tour of the city.

  • EEast, Meadow, NY

This is where I grew up (on Long Island).  And I never ran when I lived there. I hope to do a half marathon there at some point but I have run there a few times (when I was there for work.).

in Eisenhower Park

  • FFort Lauderdale, FL

I have visited Florida many times. I ran this half marathon here in February of 2021.

  • GGovernor’s Island (NYC)

You can get there by ferry from Manhattan (or Brooklyn) and I’ve done a fun 5k there (Cari has run a few 10ks there.)

  • HHampton Beach, NH

Two race-cations.. The first time, we ran a virtual half marathon and then the next year, we ran the real race.

  • IIle de La Cite, Paris

Ok, I’ve taken liberties in using the French for this letter but I did run there during a 20k race.

Happy Running! Ever run in any of these places? Please share.

  1. Well, let’s see. I’ve definitely run in Ft. Lauderdale. And I’ve run in Brooklyn and California. For my “I” I could use Illinois!
    It’s great that you actually have pictures of all these places! I’m looking forward to the next part of the alphabet. Oh, and that’s a great picture of you on the Brooklyn Bridge.

  2. I started working on my list as well. I am missing the E- I need to come up with something there 🙂 Brookly bridge is one of my favorite runs as well. You do run around!! Love it

  3. I’ve been to Paris but never run there! You’re killing this alphabet challenge – can you believe I still haven’t found an H or an I!!! There’s an H about 3 hours drive away but very remote, as for I… my dad says he knows of a place about 12 hours drive away! I may have to get creative with those two letters…!

  4. I love the idea of running the A, B, C’s! I would have to see what I’ve done, but I did do the Rock ‘n Roll Brooklyn Half a few years ago (no bridge run though 😦 ) and I did a Disney Princess 10K in Florida!
