Today (Thursday) is my Friday! My holiday weekend begins tonight. I am driving to the New York City area to visit family. I am very excited for the obvious reasons, relaxation, the consumption of a few (many) frothy beverages, good food, etc-- but I also get psyched at the thought of mapping out new runs in strange, unfamiliar territories.
My brother and his wife live in Chappaqua, Westchester County, NY. They recently moved there-- so I have not yet been-- but have heard many good things about the community. It's where the Clintons lived while Hillary served as a US senator for New York, it's full of quaint neighborhoods with tree lined streets.
Whenever I travel-- I first, map out my desired runs on GMAPS PEDOMETER--
A GREAT source. It allows you to designate a route and gives you the mileage and calories burned. I like it better than mapmyrun.com, which has more details, but is much slower.
I've already established three routes that I plan to run. One for each day I am there.
Anyone else have any "tips" when running on "trips"?
