Running Away To LA

Upcoming running vacation (run-cation) to Los Angeles

I’ll be shipping out west soon. Well, flying, but you get the picture.

Los Angeles is such a great running city. Sunny weather every day, an abundance of running / bike paths, even trails.

Hollywood sign hike anyone?

This trip I plan on doing a Runyon Canyon run, a Griffith Park run, and the Santa Monica Mountains. The first two I’ve hiked before but never ran, and the Santa Monica Mountains I’ve heard are great for trail running but I’ve never been.

It’ll be a nice change of scenery, and I’m looking forward to seeing my two close friends who live out there.

The day before my flight and the day of will be very light on miles. Hopefully that little taper will be enough to prepare my legs for the hell I plan on putting them through.

I’ll be sure to post about any adventures I get myself into!

 

Do any of you also go on occasional run-cations? Any top cities you like to travel to for running?
