Originally Donna from Running to Travel the World posted this challenge. I completed it twice:
Last Tuesday, I changed it up and chose those PLACES where I’ve raced or run (A-I). This is a continuation from that post.
- J – Jones Beach (LI), NY
I grew up going to the beach quite often during the summer months. I even worked at the theater there during college vacations.
During the weekend of my 40th high school reunion, I decided to finally run there.
- K – Killington, VT
I’ve run the Vermont City Marathon Relay twice but in this Vermont city, I have only run a 5k. (It is a LONG drive!)
- L. – Las Vegas, NV
Many times before I became a runner, I travelled to Vegas for a vacation. I did go back once to run the Rock n Roll 5k and half with some bloggers.
- M – Montreal and Melbourne, FL
I’ve visited Montreal several times and have run there. I also ran the Rock N Roll half marathon and 5k in this city.
My sister-in-law used to live in Florida and when I visited her, I would run a half marathon (and it rained both times. boo!)
- N – Naples, FL
I vacation there every May but it was where I ran my first half marathon. Since then, I’ve run a few 5ks there.
- O – Orlando, FL
Yes, another Florida vacation. No race this time. Just a run before visiting the Disney parks.
- P – Philadelphia, PA and Panama City, FL.
Unfortunately, it was a rainy weekend for my half marathon in Philly. I definitely want to re-visit this city.
My visit to Panama City was for a weekend with fellow running bloggers (and a half marathon, of course.)
- Q – Queens, NY
Well, I did run through Queens during the NYC Marathon.
- R – Rochester, NY
Another city in NYS where I have run while travelling for work. It’s probably my second favorite place to run besides NYC.
Happy Running! Ever run in any of these places? Please share.
