I love running in races, but I’m not a fan of training. Sometimes I struggle to get myself out the door. But there’s no better way to improve a trainining run than by a change of scenery.
Jason and I drove up to Seattle to visit a friend this past weekend. Originally I was irritated that I had to do a run— I didn’t want to skip it because the Tinker Bell Half will be here before you know it.
However, on Sunday morning, Jason and I went for a wonderful training run alongside Elliot Bay in Seattle’s Centennial Park. The weather was cool, but the rain held off.
New scenery, refreshing sea air and I felt pretty good. The views were wonderful and even though I’d been fighting a headache, I truly enjoyed my run. If you are in Seattle, I highly suggest Centennial Park!
Next year, perhaps I’ll run in Seattle for Valentine’s Day again. I did really liked the look of Seattle’s My Better Half Marathon—Jason and I could get interlocking heart medals!
