After my race yesterday, I really didn’t feel like running anymore.
But I knew I should since I wasn’t going boating and the graduation party that I was going to wasn’t until 3 pm.
So I decided to go to a new running location – Saratoga Spa State Park.
I have raced there but never have run there and never paid attention to where I was running during the races.
I drove to the park (which was the next exit south from the race) and just parked in the first lot that I found.
I wan’t sure where to go so I just started running. I wanted to find a path that would give me 4 more miles.
I found some interesting sights but only covered a mile and never found the path that I was looking for. Then I bumped into 2 runners who were looking for the same thing. We went in the opposite direction and found it.
Most of the path was shady and I got to see some beautiful gardens. And it made a perfect 3 mile loop back to my car.
I can’t say that it was a good run since my legs were tired from the 5K. I did walk a lot but I got the miles in and that was the plan.
I’m glad that I decided to run in a new place. I hope to run here again.
Happy Running! Do you run in the same locations or do you look for new routes?
