Places to Run

I love running, and I love travel. During a typical year I rack up at least half a dozen races and 30,000+ frequent flier miles. (During our weekly phone calls my dad often starts the conversation with "So where are you today?") Considering my hobbies, it is no surprise that my favorite way to see a city is by running through it.

If you're looking for running ideas while traveling (or a new route in your own neighborhood) browse the list below, or check out the Postcards I've sent and received over the years:
