Traveling? Go Sightrunning

When traveling to a new place, I'm sure you've been sightseeing before. Whether you're in a bus, train, or on foot, it's a great way to explore the new scenery. But why not combine the tourist and runner in you and go sightrunning instead? You'll see things you couldn't see while in a car, and you'll be able to cover more territory by running instead of walking. While on your run, you can mentally note cafes or stores you'd like to stop in later, or you can stop at places along the way whenever something piques your interest. If you're not sure where to go, many cities have companies that offer running tours. Not only will sightrunning allow you to get to know a new place, but it's also a surefire way to get in your workouts while on vacation.

When I went to school in northern Hungary, my friend and I were looked at like we were strange. And running on cobblestone and uneven pavement wasn't fun. In my uncle's town of Tolna, my sister and I did receive curious looks as well. But it was a fun way to get out of the house and explore the town and countryside. Though I wouldn't dare run at night. I'd be afraid of something jumping out of the cornfield.

I did this when I went to Choluteca in Honduras. There were about 5 or 6 of us on the trip that were runners and one guy knew the area really well, so he made up the running route. It was fantastic, but you had to watch out for the pigs and chickens that were running around loose, lol.

xSweet... I was too when I was in Paris, but I brought a card along with me with the hotel's address and just took a cab home. That way, I didn't have to worry about finding my way back to the hotel and I could run where I pleased ! I studied abroad in London and saw a lot of the city that semester by running.
