We have a few regular routes.
Route 1 is around Angie's neighborhood. This is probably my least favorite. Not sure if it is because we do it so much or because it has a couple of hills that I dislike. Two or 3 miles seems like freakin' forever when we do them here!
|This is about as exciting as the view gets on our early morning runs...long before the sun comes up!|
Route 2 is around Randee's neighborhood. This is a very flat route that we have just recently starting using. We can knock out 3 or 4 miles in her neighborhood no problem.
|View's not much different here, but we can take self portraits in the glow of the streetlamp!|
Route 3 is downtown Fort Worth. This is where we go for our long runs on the weekend. We can do 6+ miles here with no problem. There are some hills, but there is also a lot of flat. We encounter no shortage of homeless entertainment, and great scenery. We also have our favorite Starbucks we visit regularly.

|During the holidays they had this super cool light display we could run through|
|Then there is our favorite Starbucks that makes really bad coffee!|
Today we will be trying a new route. The Trinity Trail in Fort Worth. The main reason we have not tried it before is because we run in the dark. We are too scared to run the trail in the dark, even though it seems to always be full of people. I expect it to be a fun place to run!
Looks nice and scenic!
As our weekly runs get longer we are going to have to investigate new places to try. You can only run in one mile circles for so long!
What is your favorite running route? Do you go to parks or trails or do you stick to your own neighborhood? If you are in the DFW area, do you have any running locations you recommend we try?
