Destination Running Races Combine Fitness and Travel

My personal motivation to exercise stems mainly from the promise of traveling to a new location. Each year I pick a destination and find a race I can run. While finishing a half marathon feels euphoric, enjoying that race in a beautiful setting, a fun destination, or with the promise of a really excellent bonus at the finish line, makes it all the more worthwhile.

Dog Sledding in Breckenridge

We headed out to the sledding trail. The dogs were barking excitedly, almost leaping – chomping at the bit to get a move on. They seemed like a bunch of little kids whose parents told them they have to wait 30 minutes after eating to swim. I could see these beautiful Siberian Huskies couldn’t wait to go.

Making Family Skiing Easier with Ski Rental Delivery

Black Tie Ski Rental arrived at our vacation home in a van stocked with ski equipment of various sizes and brands. They spent time with each person in our group (a total of 11 people) to make sure everyone got the right fit. But I wasn’t waiting around in any lines. I gave them my boot to be fitted to the rental ski bindings, then I was off to finish my chicken pot pie.
