I recently posted about all of the benefits of running on a treadmill, which was very timely given the heat wave we've been having in Philadelphia. Well, it seems the heat wave has left us, and last night I was finally able to get outside an run along Kelly Drive. Afternoon running on Kelly Drive is one of my favorite places to run. It's always busy (both the trail AND the water), the view is GORGEOUS and it brings back memories of my first marathon, since Kelly drive is on the Philadelphia marathon route. While I still feel strongly about the benefits of treadmill running, there is definitely a mental benefit of just getting outside and pounding the pavement!
Where's your favorite place to run outside? Would you rather run on city streets? In a park? On a trail?
