Running the Mile High City

by Meghann on June 29, 2010

Good Morning!

I was up extra early this morning so I could meet a reader, Kristin, for a run around downtown Denver. It was great to have a running buddy. I put all my trust in Kristin and she guided me on a 5 mile run of the area.

Running in the mile high city is a bit different then running in sea level Orlando. If you add in the hills with the high altitude, my first couple of miles were a bit rough. I tried to keep up a decent conversation, but I could feel myself sounding winded and my lungs working a little harder than normal.

Luckily after the first mile or two I started to feel like my regular running self. I was able to rejoin the conversation and actually breathe at a normal rate, rather than short shallow breaths. Breathing is key when running!

I always love running new cities and I was so happy Kristin came out to run with me. Thank you Kristin for taking me on a beautiful running tour of the city you call home!! ๐Ÿ™‚

After my run and a quick shower I headed across the street to Freshii for breakfast.

I ordered the Apple Muesli. The cold mushy cereal sounded so fresh and delicious after a good run.

Last night I asked for a to-go box and took home some of the left over fruit and vegetables from our buffet. Why let good food go to waste? I kept the fruit and veggies on ice in bathroom sink. I knew the fruit would make a wonderful addition to my breakfast this morning.

The muesli was ok, it was sort of blah actually. It needed some cinnamon and a scoop of nut butter. It was still refreshing to eat, especially outside in the nice cool breeze. God, I can’t get over how great the weather is here!!

IMG_0653.JPG

Now, I’m off for another full day of work!

But, first I have a giveaway for you!

CulturelleLOGO_WhtBgrnd.jpg

I’m not normally one to promote supplements as I am not a fan of taking them myself, but when Culturelle contacted me and offered to giveaway some adorable I <3 Bacteria shirts for a couple of my readers, I decided I would do a little blurb on the site in order to get you guys some cute gear.

Culturelle T-Shirt Image.jpg

From the press kit:

Culturelle works to help promote overall digestive and immune health.
Diet, stress, travel and even some medications encourage bad bacteria to
flourish in your intestinal tract. When bad bacteria outnumber good
bacteria, your digestive and overall health is open to a host of potential
concerns. Culturelle, with Lactobacillus GG, safely and naturally replaces
the bad bacteria in your digestive tract with good bacteria leading to
healthier digestion and a stronger immune system.

Culturelleยฎ is all-natural, and does not contain any wheat or gluten. There
are trace amounts of dairy proteins (less than 15 ppm in each capsule), but
it is also available in a dairy-free formula.

Please note I wasn’t sent any products to actually try so I can not give an actual review on the product. However I’m hoping to get a shirt out of this too because I mean, really, who do doesn’t <3 bacteria? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just trying to be up front with you!

Culturelle has given me 3 I <3 Bacteria shirts to share with 3 lucky readers. To win simply leave a comment on this post with your favorite city to run in. (Mine would be Long Beach – I LOVED running along the beach! )

I will select the three winners in my breakfast post tomorrow morning.

Good Luck!

haha! love those shirts. my fiancee always tells me that i need more bacteria since i have stomach issues. i’d be scared running with the altitude in Denver. I live in Detroit which is relatively flat and temperate. I love running in DC even though the hills and the heat kick my butt. however, you really get to see the city and realize how small it really is.

have a great time at the conference! a few of my colleagues in the field are there and i’ve heard great things about the conversations.

2 Courtney @ Three Months June 29, 2010 at 10:50 am

Being from Lincoln, Nebraska – I’d have to choose that city. You’re right, it’s nothing special – but I would get chills every time I ran by Memorial Stadium where the Nebraska Huskers football team plays! So cool.

3 Laura June 29, 2010 at 11:26 am

I am from Omaha, NE! I actually love running in Nebraska. Besides the flatness (hehe) and the humidity (boo!), I love running along my old cross country routes. Such good memories!

4 Stacey June 29, 2010 at 10:51 am

I know this will sound kind of funny to you, but I loved running in Orlando! haha My friend lives in the Lawsona area, and running around Lake Lawsona and all those pretty streets with the awesome trees and old houses was really nice.

5 kbwood June 29, 2010 at 10:54 am

favorite city to run in- Charleston, SC! ๐Ÿ™‚

6 Crystal June 29, 2010 at 10:58 am

I don’t run, but I love to walk. Boston has been my favorite city so far for that.

7 Jenny June 29, 2010 at 10:58 am

I would love to run in Cape Town… Right before I cage dive with great whites!

8 Lauren June 29, 2010 at 10:59 am

I love running in Washington, DC! Nothing like an early evening run along the National Mall with the Capitol all lit up ๐Ÿ™‚

9 Carolyn C. June 29, 2010 at 11:00 am

Favorite city would be the mountains in Georgia! Beautiful sights but tough running!! Really fun!!

10 samantha June 29, 2010 at 11:00 am

i am jealous of your trip to denver – i want to live there at some point! skiing AND sun, you can’t go wrong!

my favorite city to run is washington, dc! i love running by the monuments, the capitol and the white house. so much history all right there!

11 Briana June 29, 2010 at 11:10 am

My favourite city to run in is my hometown, Toronto! Lots of interesting neighbourhoods, beautiful parks, and the beach as well. Love it!

12 Meg June 29, 2010 at 11:11 am

Love the cold, fruity breakfast ๐Ÿ™‚ Looks amazing! So summery.

My favorite place to run would have to be in the Keys along the beach – haven’t done it in a while, but it’s gorgeous, and just the right temperature early in the AM ๐Ÿ™‚

13 Nicole P June 29, 2010 at 11:14 am

I love running in Miami! The culture and liveliness of the city makes it so fun!

14 Jennifer June 29, 2010 at 11:15 am

Boston!!!

15 Becky June 29, 2010 at 11:17 am

Budapest! The Danube river is gorgeous, and running alongside it is a wonderful way to take in the sights.

16 Angela June 29, 2010 at 11:18 am

First of all that breakfast looks so delicious and refreshing. I’m craving cold cereal now!

As for my favorite running city, it would be a toss up between NYC (along the Hudson River of in Central Park – you can beat the views and the energy), Aspen (tough run, gorgeous sights) and Pensacola (so pretty before the oil spills :(). Probably will have to go with NYC.

17 Katy T June 29, 2010 at 11:21 am

Yeah Long Beach! Me too! I grew up in LB and have trained for multiple marathons along that bike path. Cool ocean breezes + flat + ocean views + 12 miles w/o crossing a street = awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

18 Rachel @ Suburban Yogini June 29, 2010 at 11:22 am

Favourite city to run in. My home town, Cambridge UK. There’s something about running round an 800 year old university town, the town where Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that really helps you zone out!

19 Kelly June 29, 2010 at 11:23 am

So far, New York City, I love the path the runs along the East River. It is my favorite!

20 freshman5k June 29, 2010 at 11:26 am

I haven’t had much experience running in different cities, but my half marathon in Chicago was awesome!

21 Juliene June 29, 2010 at 11:27 am

I love running in a new city, something about uncharted territory makes the run more enjoyable. However, my absolute favorite place to run is my old neighborhood in Pittsburgh(I live in Baltimore now), it just takes me back to my childhood.

22 Jen June 29, 2010 at 11:29 am

I LOVE running along the lake in Chicago…but if I didn’t live here, it would be running along the beach in Laguna Beach, CA!!! Soooo beautiful!

23 Danika June 29, 2010 at 11:31 am

i love to hit the parks on vacation! that being said, i enjoyed running in central park in NY. it never gets boring!

24 Carly @ carlysharec.com June 29, 2010 at 11:32 am

My favorite run was definitely around the Mall in D.C.! It’s a great to be surrounded with so much history.

25 Kate June 29, 2010 at 11:33 am

My favorite place to run has to be Cork, Ireland. I studied abroad there and although it is rainy.. the temperatures are perfect. Also, where else would you get drunk guys coming out of the pubs and start running next to you? Only Ireland. ha ha.

26 Sarah June 29, 2010 at 11:35 am

I used to travel full time as a consultant so I’ve gotten to run in a lot of cities! Boston, DC, SF, Miami, Minneapolis, Dallas, London…all while living in a great running city: NYC.

I think my favorite so far is Cologne (Koln) Germany. Running along the Rhine was very exhilarating!

27 Emily June 29, 2010 at 11:37 am

Since I did my MS on nutrition/bacteria, I love this shirt! My fave place to run is probably Michigan…it’s right by the lake and pretty temperate most of the time (and flat!).

28 Jenny June 29, 2010 at 11:37 am

I love to run in Boston….the parks and bridges are great for running

29 Adriana June 29, 2010 at 11:38 am

I love to run in Boston with my daughter Jenny ^^^

30 Therese June 29, 2010 at 11:39 am

I eat a lot of yogurt, but I do take culturelle from time to time (when I can afford it). It’s one of the best probiotic supplements out there. I got C. diff a few years ago, which is a bacteria that takes over your GI system when all the “good” bacteria has been wiped out. In my case, it was years of low-dose antibiotics for acne and taking a Z-pak for an ear infection on top of it put me over the edge.

I do indeed love bacteria now!

My favorite “city” is the Florida Keys. I know it’s hot and muggy, but the view from those bridges (and the flat terrain) can’t be beat!

31 Cynthia June 29, 2010 at 11:39 am

Nothing feels as comfortable as running in your hometown, so I have to say St. Louis, Missouri..the river, the Arch, the many parks, and the cool old buildings..

32 Cara June 29, 2010 at 11:40 am

Great giveaway; I actually use Culturelle because I can’t eat too much dairy! My favorite city to run in is Greenville, SC. I had never been there, went out for a blind 9-miler, and enjoyed every inch of that town!

33 Rachel A June 29, 2010 at 11:44 am

I’ve only run in Nashville, so that’s my favorite for now!

34 kim June 29, 2010 at 11:46 am

My favorite place to run was in DC. Running through the monuments was awesome scenery and makes the run seem much shorter.

Culturelle is awesome – I can’t eat dairy and it has really helped with my stomach issues. And as a chemical engineer….the bacteria shirt is too cute!

35 Rachael June 29, 2010 at 11:46 am

Mmm, bacteria. If it can be fermented, odds are I will ferment it – nuts, fruit, veggies, kombucha….my kitchen is a mad scientist’s den.
Favorite place to run thus far – outside of Mzuzu, in Malawi. It’s in the lower end of the Great Rift Valley, with winding roads, baobab trees, animals and curious children – a magical other-world that stays cool because of the altitude. Amazing evening runs/sunsets there!

36 Kate June 29, 2010 at 11:48 am

NYC, baby! The East River, the West Side Highway, and Central Park are all amazing!

37 Nicole A June 29, 2010 at 11:49 am

I absolutely love running along the beach in Aruba. My family goes every year & it has to be quite possibly the most relaxing thing ever.

38 Danielle J June 29, 2010 at 11:49 am

Berkley, CA. Great weather, college campus, cute town ๐Ÿ™‚

39 lo June 29, 2010 at 11:56 am

i love bacteria too!

40 Jess June 29, 2010 at 12:00 pm

My old college town Harrisonburg, VA. Nothing like a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains while you run!

41 Mandy June 29, 2010 at 12:00 pm

Lawrence, Kansas

42 Carrie June 29, 2010 at 12:02 pm

My favorite city to run in is…Memphis, TN! It’s where I started running, and I have a favorite route behind my college that I plan to run many, many times when I visit some friends in July!

About probiotics…they have been a lifesaver for me this year! I was getting sick every single week as a first-year teacher. When I started taking probiotics, I noticed a significant improvement in the way I felt, and I was sick less frequently. Now I truly DO love bacteria! ๐Ÿ˜‰

43 Stacey K. June 29, 2010 at 12:07 pm

I love running through trails… the scenery is so serene and beautiful!

44 thatrunnerchick June 29, 2010 at 12:08 pm

Kona, Hawaii and Lake Placid, NY for me–its a tie!

45 Jennifer June 29, 2010 at 12:15 pm

I love running in Santa Cruz, CA. Nothing beats the view and the cool ocean breeze!

46 mallory June 29, 2010 at 12:18 pm

I go to school in St Louis and it has some of the best parks and streets to run on; I love it!

47 Kyle June 29, 2010 at 12:18 pm

Huntington Beach or San Diego ๐Ÿ™‚ PERFECT weather all the time ๐Ÿ™‚

48 Julia June 29, 2010 at 12:20 pm

I love in to run in Cookeville, TN, where I’m a student at Tennessee Tech. It’s a quiet college town with sidewalks everywhere! Very running friendly! Also I’m a double major in chemistry and microbiology, so I would really love and I <3 bacteria shirt!

49 Betsy June 29, 2010 at 12:26 pm

I loving running in Vancouver. Nothing beats a run beside the ocean while gazing at the mountains…nothing!

50 Mandi June 29, 2010 at 12:26 pm

I really wish I still lived in Collingwood, ON because they had some great trails for running and biking. Loved being outside in that city.

51 Paige (Two Runners And A Brown Dog) June 29, 2010 at 12:35 pm

My favorite city to run in is New York, NY! You cannot beat Central Park! Awesome!

52 *Andrea* June 29, 2010 at 12:38 pm

my favorite city to run in is BOSTON ๐Ÿ™‚

53 Stacey June 29, 2010 at 12:39 pm

That breakfast looks great and I can totally relate to wanting something cool and refreshing in the hot weather. We have been having a mini heatwave and I have been eating museli instead of hot oats.

I haven’t run anywhere apart from where I live, so anywhere else would be awesome!

54 Jessica June 29, 2010 at 12:41 pm

I love running in Richmond Hill, ON. Mostly because my bf lives there and then he will join me for the run!

55 Kaitlin June 29, 2010 at 12:47 pm

I love running my hometown of Holland, MI. Love the lake, the trees and the breeze ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, the I<3bacteria shirt is awesome! I'm currently a grad student at UMich medical school and I'm constantly working with and growing bacteria!

56 Katie June 29, 2010 at 12:50 pm

I love to run at Virginia beach along the boardwalk. I especially like running with my boyfriends, 2 miles out to the Starbucks, enjoy a cup of coffee, and back to our hotel. We love Virginia beach as it is family friendly and very clean!

57 Katie June 29, 2010 at 12:51 pm

I mean boyfriend, not boyfriends!

58 Stephanie June 29, 2010 at 12:51 pm

Paris in the early morning!!! Best vacation I ever had! Woke up BEFORE the crack of dawn and made it past the Eiffel Tower as the sun was rising…..pure pure bliss, followed by a warm, FRESH baguette and amazing hot French coffee.

ooh, nostalgia.

ps. I <3 Bacteria!

59 Jess June 29, 2010 at 12:53 pm

Boulder, CO. Nothing against Denver since I grew up there, but Boulder has the best trails and its gorgeous! I love running at high altitude because every time I go down to sea level I feel like I can run harder and longer than I normally do.

60 jenny in new york June 29, 2010 at 12:53 pm

Favorite city to run in? I quite like running in Central Park in NYC where i live, but not the rest of the city ๐Ÿ™

61 themisadventuresofk June 29, 2010 at 12:57 pm

Seattle – views of the water and mountains at the same time (plus no humidity)!

62 Lauren June 29, 2010 at 1:01 pm

Mhm..I love to run anywhere in the woods that is a far ways away from big cities and cars and to just enjoy God’s beautiful nature.

63 discoverdiscard June 29, 2010 at 1:15 pm

i love running in Moody Beach, Maine. its along the coast and some hills in parts, right where you think its too easy it gives you a boost. i also love that its clean ocean air that im breathing because currently i live in LA and the air quality here is the WORST

64 Jessica Daly June 29, 2010 at 1:19 pm

What a fun give-away!

I prefer to run in any place that is surrounded my beautiful nature. Through trails, woods, beaches, ect!

65 atastelife June 29, 2010 at 1:20 pm

I’m not a huge runner but I absolutely love walking/exercising on the beach at Ocean Isle – a Southern beach in NC that I’ve gone to since birth. The fresh beach air and the sand beneath my feet is just the best feeling in the world.

66 Laura June 29, 2010 at 1:28 pm

Portsmouth, NH… anywhere along the seacoast in NH is gorgeous!

67 Gen June 29, 2010 at 1:33 pm

San Sebastian, Spain!

68 Martha June 29, 2010 at 1:36 pm

My favorite running spot is Del Mar, CA (right outside of San Diego proper). My boyfriend’s family lives there, and his parents’ house is a block away from the beach. It’s the perfect escape when I need some “me” time on those trips!

69 Tracy June 29, 2010 at 1:38 pm

Favorite city to run in? I would have to say Cleveland…love my city! (but I really haven’t run in other cities before, either. If I’m in another city on vacation, I usually skip my workouts…I need to work on that…)

70 Anna June 29, 2010 at 1:41 pm

I love running in NC’s Outer Banks. I used to work down there, and I loved running through the sleepy beach communities early morning when the only people out were sitting on their porches, or walking the beaches themselves. I had my own ‘secret spot’ where I would sit for a couple of minutes and watch the dolphins before picking up running again…

71 Conni June 29, 2010 at 1:43 pm

My favorite city to run in in Santa Monica along the beach. Sunny and cool

72 Valerie June 29, 2010 at 1:44 pm

Jerusalem… running in the “new” and “old” city is pretty amazing.

73 Katherine: What About Summer? June 29, 2010 at 1:46 pm

Atlanta of course! although I’ve heard San Fransisco is awesome

74 Danielle June 29, 2010 at 1:46 pm

Portland, Maine or NYC. I went on a running tour of Soho, Greenwich, and and Chinatown a few years ago and it was fabulous!

75 Lisa P. June 29, 2010 at 1:47 pm

I love running in San Francisco. I have done two half-marathons there and while they were tough because of the masive hills, they were beautiful runs.

Love the shirt, especially because I have Crohn’s Disease and products such as Culturelle help me immensely with balancing the good and bad bacteria. So, I really do love bacteria because it helps with my digestive issues!

76 rc1001 June 29, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Freshii…what a cute name!

77 Heather ODonnell June 29, 2010 at 1:58 pm

When I was in Colorado Springs a few weeks ago, I ran through Garden of the Gods park. It was so gorgeous that it easily tops my list of favorite places to run

78 greenbean June 29, 2010 at 2:04 pm

i actually <3 Culturelle ๐Ÿ™‚

and my favorite city to run is my hometown in PA. it's so peaceful to run along the river front.

79 Renee June 29, 2010 at 2:07 pm

I really do <3 bacteria … I take a probiotic every day.

I used to visit Martha's Vineyard in the summer when I was in high school. I also ran cross country at the time and doing my training runs through the island was amazing. I can't think of anything more calming.

80 Emily G. June 29, 2010 at 2:11 pm

Does it matter if I don’t run? I do like power walking and my favorite place would have to be on Pensacola’s beach. I LOVVE walking down the straightway! Water on both sides with GORGEOUS views!

81 Leslie June 29, 2010 at 2:23 pm

I studied abroad in Galway, Ireland and fell in love with running along the “prom”–a paved walkway along the bay. A friend asked me to go back to Galway next summer and thinking of those nice, windy runs along the bay made me seriously consider it =)

82 theprocessofhealing June 29, 2010 at 2:31 pm

Mine would be in Adare, Ireland!

83 marci June 29, 2010 at 2:39 pm

Seattle, love to run in that city don’t like to drive in so much but running it is great. The hills, houses, water,mountains, poeple,stores so much to look at.

84 runningwithsass June 29, 2010 at 2:45 pm

my favorite place to run was castaway cay, disney’s private island their cruise ships go to. so beautiful!

85 Melissa G June 29, 2010 at 2:49 pm

My favorite city to run in is the one you’re currently in and where I live. Denver- the mile high city!! Love…

86 Kelly June 29, 2010 at 2:54 pm

My favorite city to run in is my hometown of Austin, Texas. We have some awesome trails and the weather is usually always decent. Plus it’s a cool city!

87 Paige June 29, 2010 at 3:13 pm

I love running in Central Park in NYC

88 Fervent Foodie June 29, 2010 at 3:13 pm

Mine would be downtown Charlotte… I just love it there!

BTW – I have a PB2 giveaway posted on my blog this week! http://ferventfoodie.com/2010/06/28/pb2-giveaway/

89 marie June 29, 2010 at 3:20 pm

Monterey, CA!! It’s also my favorite city to go to the farmer’s market, my favorite city to cycle, my favorite city to walk…..

You get the picture!

90 Jaime June 29, 2010 at 3:31 pm

so far my favorite place would be on long island….so many beachy areas. pretty scenery makes me run much more.

91 Heather June 29, 2010 at 3:33 pm

Cute shirts!

My favorite city to run in is Prescott, AZ (so far). The hills are a killer, but it’s so pretty and serene when you get away from the city that it’s worth it!

92 katie didit June 29, 2010 at 3:38 pm

Oak Island, NC…my favorite place on earth!

PS. My boyfriend would LOVE that shirt. He works with bacterias in order for them to develop into plastic (he’s an environmental biochemist).

93 EL June 29, 2010 at 3:38 pm

I love running in Baltimore!

94 hamredesign June 29, 2010 at 3:54 pm

Too bad they aren’t giving away samples of the product itself. I am looking into purchasing a probiotic supplement. I’m lactose intolerant and have some other food sensitivities as well, so I figure it can only help!

95 bianka June 29, 2010 at 3:58 pm

I love running on the beach! So wherever there is a beach I guess but I think my fav run was in a quiet part of daytona

96 Ashley June 29, 2010 at 3:59 pm

My current city of Raleigh, NC! ๐Ÿ™‚ Beatiful lakeside trails to run on, and since I’ve been injured and unable to run recently I’ve gone walking in some gorgeous neighborhoods that I look forward to running through soon!

97 sAm June 29, 2010 at 4:07 pm

I love running in Chicago!

98 Danielle June 29, 2010 at 4:09 pm

My favorite city to run in is probably San Francisco. The hills were killer but it was so beautiful!

99 Allison R. June 29, 2010 at 4:11 pm

Well, I haven’t ran in that many cities, so right now my favorite is my own city- Madison! Lots of great trails and scenery ๐Ÿ™‚

100 Colleen June 29, 2010 at 4:13 pm

I love running in Charleston–ocean view + beautiful architecture!

101 Melissa @ For the Love of Health June 29, 2010 at 4:19 pm

I LOVE DENVER! Great city!
I ran there and I didn’t find it to be much of a difference- perhaps I had a lot of energy that day or something because I know there is definitely a difference.

The fresh fruit looks amazing!

102 Ashlyn June 29, 2010 at 4:21 pm

I love running the trails in Estes Park, Colorado just outside of Rocky Mtn. National Park. Breathtaking both literally and figuratively!

103 Lindsay June 29, 2010 at 4:43 pm

I love running in Colorado Springs, CO!…hometown pride, baby!….it was listest as the best running city in Runner’s World a year ago or so. It’s beautiful, full of parks and trails, and has some of the best and most accessible views in the country.

104 danica June 29, 2010 at 4:46 pm

I love running anywhere with cooler weather! But running on the beach is always fun!

105 kristin June 29, 2010 at 4:51 pm

i really wanted someone to say Cleveland because I need a new running buddy! ๐Ÿ™‚

106 Kellie June 29, 2010 at 5:14 pm

We live by the beach, so I have to say I am pretty blessed with beautiful places to run. My favorite spot though it the hill overlooking the ocean. It is not so much fun to run up, but the view is gorgeous.

107 Jennifer B. June 29, 2010 at 5:14 pm

San Diego is one of the best places to run. Pretty sites and perfect temps!

108 Monica June 29, 2010 at 5:24 pm

Who doesn’t love bacteria? ๐Ÿ˜€

I would love to run in a city like New York City. Running in central park, could you just imagine how beautiful and relaxing that would be? But for now, I haven’t ran in many cities so Ottawa has to be my favorite (for now).

109 sarah (the SHU box) June 29, 2010 at 5:53 pm

i’m picking my own city of chapel hill, nc — love the rolling hills! and as an MD, i would luuuuv that shirt ๐Ÿ™‚

110 Lisa @ bakebikeblog June 29, 2010 at 6:01 pm

haha what a great shirt! i am sure you would get some funny looks wearing it though???

111 Anne P June 29, 2010 at 6:04 pm

Ha, those are kind of awesome. My fave running city is Tampa! Flat and beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

112 melissa June 29, 2010 at 6:08 pm

Island heights, NJ—-soooo beautiful and peaceful! i would love to live there–thank goodness its a 10 minute drive away!!
i <3 bacteria too!!! i have it every day!

113 Elizabeth June 29, 2010 at 6:40 pm

Myrtle Beach. I haven’t actually run there, but it’s one of the few places I’ve visited and it seems like a good place to run. ๐Ÿ™‚

114 Emma June 29, 2010 at 6:42 pm

Hey Meghann! I love your blog, I started reading blogs recently and yours is one of my favorites!
I recently went on a trip to Florence, Italy and running there was awesome. It was raining one of the times I ran and the cobblestone streets were a big tricky but I loved looking at the beautiful buildings as I ran.

Nashville. It’s an awesome city to run in – there’s a lot going on, everyone’s friendly (for the most part) and the hills aren’t too bad! ๐Ÿ™‚

116 Emily June 29, 2010 at 6:55 pm

Austin – it’s perfect.

117 laura t. June 29, 2010 at 7:06 pm

i love to run along the waterfront/near water where ever i am

118 Emilyeatsclean June 29, 2010 at 7:17 pm

What fun shirts! ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite city to run in, out of all the places I’ve run, would have to be Asheville, NC. You go from neighborhood streets to city streets in no time and the hills make for a killer run!!

I have to take probiotics for my IBS and would love one of these shirts.

We have friends who just moved to Denver and I can’t wait to run there when we go visit. Last time I was in Colorado I had an injury and couldn’t run.

120 Mel June 29, 2010 at 7:30 pm

maui Hawaii! The weather is perfect and the waves so calm in the am!

121 Katie June 29, 2010 at 7:57 pm

I just ran my first half marathon in Vancouver BC…..and got engaged! So it’s definitely my favorite place to run! ๐Ÿ™‚

122 April Moore June 29, 2010 at 8:05 pm

Oooo, my fav city to run in???

I live in Pensacola, FL… sooooo hot and humid. I can appreciate it, but it’s not my favorite. My favorite city that I ran in this year was Anaheim, CA. I was at a conference and nothing beats meeting up with old friends and networking during a beautiful (non-humid!) morning run around the city!!!

123 Lauren June 29, 2010 at 8:17 pm

I love running in Baltimore, Inner Harbor! But I am always open for new cities to run in. Oh and the OBX is also a lovely place to run!

124 Lindsey June 29, 2010 at 8:30 pm

My favorite city to run in is my hometown, Rochester, NY!

125 Ilene June 29, 2010 at 8:36 pm

San Diego ๐Ÿ™‚ You can’t beat dry climates!

126 Jenny June 29, 2010 at 8:52 pm

Running in Boston! So fun to check out the city as you go by…

127 hemp jogger June 29, 2010 at 8:58 pm

I loved running in chicago while I was there for school. Nothing beat jogging along the lake front, beach on one side, skyscrapers on the other. Incredible scenes for sure.

128 WendyF June 29, 2010 at 9:20 pm

Running along the Rideau Canal on a sunny, cool, breezy fall day – beautiful !

129 tiffany June 29, 2010 at 9:21 pm

i have to admit that i’ve only ever run in my neighborhood, in the suburbs of NJ! but i would love to try to run on the beach sometime!

130 Amanda June 29, 2010 at 9:21 pm

My favorite place to run in the US is Davis, CA. There are tons of paths and I never get tired of the scenary!

131 Kristin June 29, 2010 at 9:38 pm

Running in Austin, TX is the best! So many great trails and awesome scenery!

132 Macrae Carreker June 29, 2010 at 9:45 pm

Does Italy count ๐Ÿ™‚ A few springs ago my family stayed at a villa in Tuscany. Running on the dirt roads through farms and other amazing scenery with the sunrise every morning was irreplaceable!

133 Becky June 29, 2010 at 9:56 pm

I totally need this shirt! I grow bacteria for a living and have this ad posted in my lab!

My favorite city to run in is Lincoln, NE because that is where I did my first 1/2!

134 Kate June 29, 2010 at 9:56 pm

I heart running in Sioux Falls, SD because they have tons of bike/running/walking trails all through the city that are near awesome waterfalls, rivers, woods and pretty scenery! There’s always something new to see and it’s relatively flat so it’s great for a good run.

135 Leslie June 29, 2010 at 10:04 pm

I love running in Philadelphia. There are so many awesome city trails and also lots of back road options. It’s great to switch it up!

It’s always so much fun to run in any new place!

Any run ANYWHERE is a fabulous run in my book!

136 Sonja June 29, 2010 at 10:09 pm

LOVE that T-shirt! Who doesn’t need a little extra bacteria love??? ๐Ÿ™‚

As far as favorite cities to run in… it’s a toss-up. I am from Ogden, Utah, so like you are experiencing in Denver, I get to run in beautiful arid conditions with LOTS of hills and LOTS of altitude. I love running here, but we go to Pensacola, Florida each year for a family vacation, and I must admit, I looooooove running on the long, flat roads and being so close to sea level. I feel so strong, like I can keep going forever!

Have an awesome time in Denver, it’s a cool city for sure!

137 kt June 29, 2010 at 11:00 pm

Chicago! Love, love, LOVE racing there. But I hope to get to run in many more cities to come!

138 Jess June 29, 2010 at 11:23 pm

Anywhere on the water….or San Fran! Nice and cool plus challenging hills!

139 Vanessa June 29, 2010 at 11:25 pm

My favorite city to run is my hometown of NYC, especially along the stretch of 12th Ave.

140 Mel June 30, 2010 at 12:14 am

Typically anywhere I’m vacationing is a delightful run… but one of my favorites was Hilton Head, South Carolina. It was so neat to run and see so many historical areas…and of course the beautiful beaches! Every time we vacation there I am so eager to get up and run by myself in the morning. ๐Ÿ™‚

141 Milca June 30, 2010 at 12:42 am

Definitely New York!! I love the smog and the over population and the great encounters on the street.

142 Hannah June 30, 2010 at 1:45 am

New York City by far! But definitely in Central Park, or along the Brooklyn Bridge.

143 Amy June 30, 2010 at 3:58 am

Madrid, Spain!!! It’s the city I call home now! The sidewalks are wide and there are lots of public water fountains. But also there’s a big park in the middle where you can totally forget you’re even in the city!!!

144 shayneatjustgathering June 30, 2010 at 8:00 am

I already take Culturelle and love it, so of course I would love an I <3 Bacteria shirt! So cute.
Fave city to run in: Dublin, where I first really got into running. The weather is always cool and light, so it makes for very refreshing runs!

145 amanda June 30, 2010 at 8:11 am

that freshii place looks yummy!

that shirt makes me giggle. i’d totally sport it. my fave city to run in? mmm. considering i haven’t been too many places, i have a limited selection. i’d have to say quito, ecuador. the surroundings of the city are simply breath taking. something about running on a dirt road with little ecua bambinos playing right next to you is shear motivation!

146 Caroline June 30, 2010 at 8:18 am

I think I might be too late… But my favorite city would be Venice! I wasn’t running yet when I went but several of my group members got up and went on exploratory runs. All of the stairs up the bridges and back, the beautiful squares and old architecture, the sea breezes… I do love that city.

147 Tammy June 30, 2010 at 8:41 am

Of the places I’ve run, I would have to say…lakewood, CO..it was tough adjusting to the altitude, but I LOVE the hills!

148 Chris June 30, 2010 at 9:54 am

So ironic – I just got my grade in Microbio today (a B!!) this shirt is too cute!
And my fav place to run is Flushing Meadows Park in Queens NY!! =)

149 Marissa June 30, 2010 at 10:27 am

Its amazing that you can adapt to the hills! I’ve been running in them… forever… and I still don’t feel like I’m used to them yet!
