For the last year I have been more than happy with a running trail near my home. It was perfect to say the least.
From my apartment building to the corner was the perfect warm-up. The walk gave me just enough time to loosen up a bit and then from the corner was an awesome 3 mile loop. The loop took me past lakes, soccer fields, shaded trails, boardwalks, and most importantly a bathroom. And I saw so much wildlife too! Bunny rabbits galore!
Beautiful White Egrets…
And check this guy out… He is a Cypress Fox Squirrel. He didn’t let me get so close.
Here is a pic I found online of the Cypress Fox Squirrel
Awesome, right?! I also see turtles, a gator once, and plenty of weird bugs, lizards and frogs. =D
But unfortunately, we moved. So, now I can’t have the pleasure of stepping out my front door and enjoying this loop without having to hop in a car. Sad face. (you can check out my other blog for move updates… Apartment Class)
So I needed to find a new running trail and fast! My sister mentioned that I should check out Map My Run. And I am so glad I did! It is amazing. I was able to find a little park that had a great trail just two miles away. The actually loop is only a mile so I go around it a few times, but it is shaded. Map My Run is a great place to find different trails that runners have actually been on. I plan on exploring more on the site next time I have the opportunity. Have you checked out MapMyRun.com? Any suggestions on how to use it to the full… because I am all ears.
Thanks for checking out this post! Leave me a comment and let me know how you find new running paths. See ya!
