One of the things I love about living in Raleigh is the greenway system… this city is lined with miles and miles of tree-canopied trails and the weather is mild enough so that you can get outside for most of the year.
Over the last few years, I’ve volunteer-coached approximately six running programs and participated in a couple of other training programs for myself, so I’ve discovered some great routes outside. Our house actually backs to a greenway trail that connects to some lovely hiking trails around the lake. Honestly, it’s a wonder that I ever get on the treadmill with all that gorgeous nature out there, but sometimes I just take it all for granted and forget how lucky I am. I’m trying to focus on getting outside more though… even though it’s a bit on the warmish side these days.
