Are you a runner? Enjoy exploring a new city? Hate running alone? Looking for a running partner? Tired of the treadmill? Wanting to find a great way to incorporate running and being a tourist? I ran (no pun intended) across a great site that combines running with tourism. City Running Tours operates currently in 10 different cities. Including: Washington DC, San Francisco, Chicago as well as others. If I were a runner (and I’m not); this would be the type of thing that I would seek out.
As a Travel Nurse, sometimes it’s difficult to maintain a fitness routine. Many times, we are too involved in exploring the new city, trying to make social contacts and learning the new facility that we have landed in to give time needed to our personal wellness. The treadmill at the hotel or apartment community do little to entice you to get motivated. Watching the news or the latest episode of what-ever reality show is currently playing on the wall mounted TV while you sweat away isn’t the most optimal of enjoyment. Why not try out one of these running tours?
What are your thoughts? Have you done one of these before? Willing to try it out? Maybe you think this is CRAZY? Let me know in the comments below.
