Now really, did you expect anything less?  Who’s NOT surprised this is my topic?

Hands down, everyone.

We went to Walt Disney World last November for the Wine & Dine Half.  We stayed a couple of extra days and I knew I wanted to get the legs moving again soon after the race.

We picked the Port Orleans French Quarter not only for its charm but for it’s running paths!




Here are my 3 tips for running on vacation.  They really can be applied to any vacation location you choose.

1.  Locate it

I heard such wonderful things about this resort from the running community.  It’s one of the smallest and most beautiful properties at Disney World.  Walking to its sister resort, Port Orleans Riverside, took less than 10 minutes and was very convenient.

I knew by picking this resort I’d be sure to have a lovely location for my extra runs.




2.  Schedule it
My vote here is to make it a priority.  My vacation runs are the most relaxing and stress-free ones I experience!  I choose to start my morning off with a few miles, which puts me in the right mindset for the rest of the day.

When I’d done, I feel like the day is already a success and even a child’s meltdown on Dumbo (oh yes, it happened!) can’t ruin my good mood!


3.  Do it
Like the saying goes, just do it!  Don’t let anyone tell you not to run if that’s what makes you happy.

Get out and enjoy your new surroundings.  I love wandering around the resorts looking for new and magical surprises.

Patty is a 40-ish mother of four living in Virginia. A bit geeky, sometimes sarcastic, lover of a candid confession. She's trying to love running, she swears. But much like her marathon, it’s taking a very long time. Ahem. She's searching for the perfect way to balance family, work, travel, and fitness. Perfect defined as high on fun, low on guilt.
