Originally Donna from Running to Travel the World posted this challenge. I completed it twice:
- S – Sarasota, FL, Sanguinet, France and Saratoga Spring, NY
I love to visit Sarasota when I go to Naples, FL each May. However, I have also run two half marathons there in the winter.
When I visited Paris several years, I also went to Sanguinet (small town on the west coast north of Burgundy). My travel companion had friends who lived there. Of course, I ran there every morning.
I love to run in the Saratoga State Park and I’ve raced in this city many times too. It is famous for horse racing.
- T – Troy, NY
Not too far from where I live and one of the largest Thanksgiving races is held here each year.
- U – Utica, NY
This city is famous for its summer 15k (The Boilermaker) and beer. I was there my first summer of running for its 5k.
- V – Vestal, NY and Vero Beach, FL.
I would have said Vermont but I already mentioned a race there. Vestal is a small town is just north of Binghamton, NY and has a nice rail trail there. I ran on it several times when I was there travelling for work.
Vero Beach is another place on the east coast of Florida where I ran a half marathon.
- W – Waverly, RI and West Palm Beach, FL
One of my close college friends built a house nearby in RI so she talked me into visiting to kayak and to race.
I have quite a few friends who winter in the West Palm part of Florida (east cost). As a result, I try to visit them each winter and usually run a race while I’m there.
- X – Nope.
- Y Z??? Nada – I guess I need to travel more (as a runner).
I’ve been to Yellowstone and Zion National Parks but again it was BEFORE I became a runner.
Happy Running! Ever run in any of these places? Please share.
