3. Switch Up Routes – I have a few routes that I run on a regular basis. They are familiar and I know their exact distance. However, running the same old routes time and time again can become dull and boring. I like to liven things up a bit by discovering new paths, taking my running to places I’ve never been. Every once in a while I will even drive out to the mountains, just to experience some new scenery. Running is not limited to a particular court, rink, or field, like other sports. We have this entire world to explore, so venture out there and take advantage of it!
