I recently went on a road trip to Colorado (more on that later). Along the way, I made several stops to shake out my legs and run a few miles. Here are some tips and pictures.
- Have your stuff ready! – It’s much easier to pull off and go for a run if you know it’s only going to take 2 minutes to get ready and run. If your shoes are in a different bag than your shirt and you’ve forgotten where your Garmin is, well, you’re much more likely to just keep on driving and skip the run.
- Watch for signs – Sometimes there are signs along interstates indicating a nearby trailhead. The PCT off I-80 is (near Donner Pass) is a good example.
- LOOK for trails – Sometimes you just have to keep an eye out for trails.
- Anticipate trails – If you’re driving through a mountain range or by a state park, you know there will be trails. Also, ski resorts are great (and tough) to through in the summer.
