(Almost) Wordless Wednesday (The Williamsburg Bridge Edition)

I am hesitant about running outside when I am travelling,
but since I did this route last year, I packed my running gear.

I walked a few blocks to the path along the river.

I knew I could run to the Williamsburg Bridge.

It was amusing to see the old Domino Sugar plant across the river.

When I finished my run, it was fun to look back and see how far I’d gone.

Of course, I stopped at Starbucks for a grande bold and some chocolate milk to refuel.

Do you run alone when you travel?

Have you tried refueling with chocolate milk?

    it may sound silly but this is one of the things I admire about you too.
    you are sooooo flipping busy.
    you make no excuses.
    you fit exercise in.

      It really has become the one thing I do for myself (especially if you count the post-workout coffee as part of the working out!) so I want to fit it in

    I have never had chocolate milk after a workout, but I’ve been hearing a lot about it lately from many people… might have to try it. I definitely do go out for runs alone when I travel – it’s one of my favorite ways to see other cities (new or not)… early in the morning when the city is “getting ready for the day” 🙂

  3. great run! looks like a fun place to go for a route. Love that you stopped at starbucks!

  4. Laura @ Mommy Run Fast says:

    I love running when traveling. It’s such a great way to check out a new city. You got some great shots!

  5. I agree with Miz – you motivate me to not fall into the ‘I’m too busy” excuse trap. I love that you fit exercise in on a business trip AND that you also fit in some fun time on business trips.

    No, I’m not a big chocolate milk fan. I’d rather refuel with the healthy fat and protein in some peanut butter.

  6. My husband and I definitely run while we travel! We usually have a training plan to follow, though, so that helps keep us accountable.

    Love the photos from your run!

    I always run when traveling–it’s the best part! NYC is also one of my favorite locations for a run. Glad you enjoyed it!

  8. Do you run alone when you travel? Yes, I do. I love bring my garmin 910 along an getting in mileage in someplace new.

    Have you tried refueling with chocolate milk? Nope, I eat and drink only a plant-based diet. so my favorite chocolate refuel drink is Dark Chocolate Coconut Water.

  9. I love to run when I travel as I like exploring new places. Your recovery fuel is the same as mine!

    You hesitate to run outside if it’s raining 30 miles away. :p

  11. I’m always too nervous to run alone when I travel. I will always opt for the hotel gym and boredom but safety. I used to drink c milk after a run, but in the summer I always forget to take a way to chill it

    • Coco says:

      I used to never run outside on a trip but I’ve gotten a bit braver if I know there is a route where other runners will be out (like this one).

    Starbucks is such a great treat after a hard workout! 🙂


I'd love to know what you think!
