As casual as it may come across on this blog, medical school is no small feat and Will and I have survived it together. As we approach our final year, we’ve been tossing around ideas of what we might do to celebrate the moment we’re both officially MD’s. For whatever reason, I’m obsessed with the idea of renting an RV and exploring this big, beautiful country together. Will was the opposite of excited about this plan when I first proposed it but yesterday, he sent me this and I knew he’d come around. I had also recently come across this map of a United States Brewery tour so all we need to add now are some running landmarks and an official start date!
When my sister and I traveled across the country two summers ago, I had a blast running in different places and had one of the best workouts of my life on a random bike path in Memphis. As Will and I plan the trip, my contribution is to come up with where to run as we travel. For example, I definitely want to run on Pre’s trail and on the track at Nike Headquarters. I’d love to run part of the Grand Canyon and up Pike’s Peak.
As we’re putting together our itinerary, what are some places that you’ve run that you think we can’t miss? Have you ever traveled cross country?
