Last night I tried ZzzQuil to help me with my sleeping issues… it totally took me back to being a kid and drinking cough med!! I actually love that taste!
The verdict? It didn’t really work. No different than Melatonin, Valerian Root, etc…. I am running out of ideas people!
Anyways…On to something GREAT.
First of all, the title of the article should make you all Super Duper excited and bounce up and down in your seat– it did for me.
(From the article)
“In addition to New York, you can find City Running guides in Chicago, San Diego, Washington, D.C., Charleston and Austin… Every city has preset routes, from the Magnificent National Mall run in D.C. to the Wrigleyville route in Chicago, but guides will customize runs to accommodate clients of any ability and with any interests.”
City Running Tours guides all the runs in popular cities throughout the country. You can get a shirt, photo in front of a significant site/monument/street/etc, discounts and other goodies! Sign me up!!
*My next question…being a poor grad student who is constantly thinking of the future, jobs, and life in general, is…. How can I get a job that “requires” me to run around with a group of people in a great city?!?! Can we say dream job??
Most of us runners are pretty good about running (at least) a few times while on vacation or traveling for work– taking to the street is one of the best ways to see a city– but for those who are uncomfortable running in a new city solo, and want the company of other runners, or want a bit of background/history lesson to the city you are running in… this sounds perfect!
I love running (no pun intended) across articles that show the world that running is not just some punishing workout that is a huge suck-fest and is only done to lose weight. That hurts my ears to hear!! Running is FUN! And I think tours like these are waking up the population to the joy of being active— it is a lifestyle!!
Stay Wonderful My Friends 🙂
Has anyone ever done one of these (or similar) running tours?
