Running Routes

From Manhattan to Brooklyn there are so many places to run. One of the absolute worst places to run is through the street. So many traffic lights! I mean by the time you reach the sixth light you’re contemplating if it’s even worth running or would Netflix be the better option.

Running. is. better. 

The best place to run is along the water. For example the West Side Highway in Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge Park in Brooklyn. Number one, there are far fewer people than on the street. Number two, you can keep going nobody’s stopping you. Number three, the view is sooo nice and also really cool (temperature wise). There also aren’t as many distractions as there are let’s say running up fifth avenue. 

If you can’t tell what gets me out of the house to run is thinking about what and where I am going to eat afterwards. Food is a huge motivator, not only because it tastes good but because its the body’s way of rewarding itself and building muscle. Yes, strengthening your muscles makes you stronger but if you don’t eat enough of the right things you’re getting nowhere. Just like if you feast on fast food after a hard workout, what are you gaining? So, pick a place on one of these lists and run to it! Even if it’s just a mile or a twenty minute run you’re still running!!

Here are a few ideas. The ones with stars are my favorite, just thought I’d let you know.
