In many cases, summertime is synonymous with travel. For runners this means kinks in training and the possibility of losing critical miles. I’m a true believer in the importance of travel and seeing the world. In my opinion, running in new places is one of the most enjoyable ways to run.
I signed up for my first marathon in the summer of 2010 while living and traveling in Europe. I started out in Switzerland, where I found that running in the fresh mountain air, along the lakes and through the quaint towns, invigorated me. I was nannying for an Italian family and living at their mountain home in Pontresina, Switzerland at the time, and my daily runs were my “me” time.
