Types of Fall Runners You’ll See Out (Pandemic Version)

When the pandemic started, I posted Exercisers You’ll See During Social Distancing.  Now that fall is finally here; it’s time for the type of runners you’ll see when out and about this fall. It’s different in 2020 due to the lack of major marathons, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see fall exercisers out and about (hopefully social distancing).

When the Treadmill is a Last Resort

When the Last Resort is the Treadmill…

First, I don’t hate the treadmill. I think it’s an incredible tool to get workouts in you “couldn’t normally get.”

Maybe you live in upstate New York when it’s -30.

Maybe you live in Florida during Hurricane season…

Maybe you live in the midwest during the tornado season.

Maybe you live out west where going outside is like smoking a pack of cigarettes.

Exploring Wildcat Canyon Regional Park (Richmond, CA)

Recently I took a field trip out to Richmond, CA. I’ve heard Wildcat Canyon Regional Park was a gorgeous but tough spot to run, so I was excited to check out some trails. It did not disappoint, and the 1700 feet of climbing was tough.

August Training Recap: Lots of Trails

August flew by! It’s my first month of living in California. It’s been hard to get fully settled. After spending a couple of weeks househunting, we finally found a house we can afford and liked in Napa. It’s been fun to have a complete change of scenery./ While I miss friends in New Jersey, the new change has been exciting and fun.

Of anything (life, job searching), running has been going the best. It’s consistent and you can get out the door most anywhere.

Exploring Alston Park in Napa, CA

As I begin to explore more of Napa, I’ve recently come across Alston Park. As you can tell from the photos, I’ve already been a few times because it’s easy to get too and an enjoyable park.

Located in Northwest Napa, Alston Park is roughly 157 acres. There are about 3 miles of trails and rolling hills with views of Napa and Napa Valley. The backdrop is beautiful; in fact, it’s where I saw the hot air balloons land last week. I’ve run and hiked at Alston Park, and it’s nice to have a beautiful local park.
