In a new city and short on space? Try these coach-approved workouts that can be done on the road.
Nothing beats a day in the sunshine and a night sleeping under the stars.
Leave the phone at home and pitch a tent in Acadia National Park, where 120 miles of trails show off some of Mother Nature’s best work.
Trail: The short-but-steep scramble up the Acadia Mountain Trail is worth the burning quads, especially if you head up to watch the sun rise over Somes Sound.
Race: Don’t miss the Mount Desert Island Marathon, which packs a ton of charm into a small-town race.
This mountain town is perfect for anyone who enjoys an epic run. With more than 200 trails meandering through grasslands, foothills, canyons and alpine treasures, it’s easy to get your fresh-air fix.
Trail: The Mesa Trail, a 13-mile out-and-back at the base of the Flatirons, is a must-do tour of Boulder’s mountain parks.
Race: The Bolder Boulder 10K, one of the world’s largest races (with more than 50,000 entrants!), is a good reason to leave your campsite and go into town for a few hours.
