Run Eat Repeat advises on the best things to eat and drink before and after long summer runs so that you can stay healthy all season.
This weekend I was traveling and wanted to get in a mid-distance run. I looked up where to run in the area and found a super easy-to-find and long distance path! Score!! I was very excited to explore the area AND get in a 10-miler.
But only one mile into the run I was stopped by a “Trail Closed” sign. Fail! I was barely warmed up. I didn’t really know the area. I wanted to know what was behind that sign.
Not being from the area, I decided I should not just try to go around the fence and keep going—it could be dangerous. I decided to pull up my location on Google Maps on my phone and see if there were any other trails in the area. Luckily, I saw the path went in the other direction where it connected across the street. It was hard to see it from where I was, but the map helped me find it easily. I made a note of where I was starting on the path and set off on my run.
Here are options if you find yourself on a closed trail and aren’t sure where to turn (literally!):
You’re welcome. Happy Running!
