… You take enough running clothes with you for half of the days you’ll be on your short family trip, even though you have no idea if there will be places to run or not.
We rented a cabin at a state park this past week for 3 nights and I did no research into what types of roads and trails they had, or how long those roads/trails could be. I packed my road shoes and my trail shoes and two complete running outfits and headed on my way. My husband was disappointed that he hadn’t planned the same way as I did, because there were serious paved trails and singletrack trails there! The first morning (Monday), I ran 3.25 miles of paved trails (taking it easy coming off of my half marathon the Saturday two days prior) and the second morning, I went for a 3.0 single track trail run.
Ready for anything – that’s my motto!

As I told you before, my favorite thing about running is how I take my running gear everywhere and usually my more cherished memory of a place is the run I took there. Honestly, I remember my runs better than most things, even years after I’ve visited a city or place. There is no better way to explore an area than to have to find 3-6 miles to cover running and then just do it. It’s the fucking best. 😉
