we’re getting warmer…

took this morning’s 8 mile run to the beach with an out and back run down ocean ave.  there are so few things better than a morning run along the beach.  even if my legs felt like lead after an hour and a half of spinning last night.

….not to mention it was 72 degrees at 7am this morning!  the weekend forecast is calling for some warm temps and i couldn’t be more excited.  i intend on spending every minute i’m not working this weekend OUTSIDE, breaking out the paddleboard, getting some long runs in with the sun shining and maybe doing some patio drinking!

my mood instantly improves when the weather changes around here, i hate being stuck inside because of the snow, rain or just cold temps.  during my marathon training i tried to run outside as much as possible, but couldn’t bring myself to train in 20 degree weather or 30 mph gusting wind.  once spring rolls around i spend 90% of my time running outside.  which means i need to find some new trails to check out!

some of my current favorites are:

  • thompson park ~ lincroft, nj
  • fair haven fields ~ fair haven, nj
  • sandy hook
  • hartshorne woods ~ highlands, nj
  • deal test site ~ oakhurst, nj

 

what are some of your favorite running routes when the weather breaks?  

any trails in the northeast i should check out – i’m always up for a weekend road trip!?
