So many times I will be out on a run and spot some path and decide to just take it. This is my way of charting new courses and see where it takes me. Sometimes the path I take leads to a dead end which results in backtracking but most of the time it leads me to a whole new area that I have never been before and some awesome connector to something else.
On Thursday’s run I found such a path which lead me to a huge amount of other trails that are single track. It makes me so excited to explore the area and see what additional course I can chart out.
What I love about running is just this, the Exploration of the area, getting the lay of the land on foot that you will never experience driving a car. I just love it. Another bonus of running
Good indications to check out a path
A dirt road that seems to be a connector between two major roadways
A golf course path, but be careful
A Bike path, most cities have them
A hidden trail off the path, this will usually lead somewhere so be prepared that it doesn't twist you around
Happy Course hunting
