Find a great running route on vacation

April 8, 2009 | By | Comments (3)

Too bad you can’t burn calories by packing running shoes on a trip. I don’t know how many times my workout clothes have taken a trip and made it back home without ever leaving the suitcase.

But serious runners make sure they get out of their hotel and into their destination. Some say it’s the best way to get to know a city. They're the folks that will love the Map My Run website, which offers hundreds of running routes all over the world. They’re submitted and road-tested by runners, so you know you’re getting a reasonable route.

In the U.S., you’ll find runs from Savannah to Seattle, and many spots in-between. It includes total mileage for each run, and printable maps. Other features let you log your workouts and track miles.

Now if it could only get you out of bed early enough to hit the pavement…

    If I have enough time for it, I would still prefer a quiet walk to get to know the city better but I think in most instances during vacations, this would be the way to go.
