Since the weather is warming up, let’s get our lazy cold weather asses back outside. Yes, the sun is starting to shine so open your shades, put on some shorts, and get running because we all love running, right?
Many of us slave away at the gym during the colder months running like its our job. No matter if you’re just maintaining your shape or trying to loose those extra pounds. But, lets face it, Archbold Gym is extremely hot and I’m not referring to the hot guys lifting the weights. It’s muggy, sweaty, and all types of gross. I swear that gym is sweaty all on its own.
So lets get motivated to run around campus for once. I know it’s hard and you don’t want to go outside let alone get out of bed, but it will be worth it!
To help you get out of bed, I’ve taken the time to gather a few running routes around campus that I find enjoyable, yet challenging.
The route in the picture above is 3.4 miles long and goes through Thornden Park and down through Main Campus. (This photo wont unload to Tumblr…) It has a variety of difficulties throughout the route, and well yes Syracuse is pretty much hill central so get ready. You know that grandparent joke when they say, “When I went to school I had to walk up hill both ways…” I think they were talking about Syracuse.
For other great runs I suggest going to mapmyrun.com and plugging in different routes and even checking out what other people have posted.
*I understand that this is Syracuse, New York targeted, but mapmyrun.com is a great source for anywhere and everywhere. Seriously still use the site its amazing.
