My favorite running trails
I have a very short list of my favorite places to go running in all the world. These are the places that as a runner, I dream about hitting the trail. When I say that the list is short, well, it consists now of three places: Zion National Park where I went with my mom and dad in high school and stayed at River Mary's house, somewhere near Nakuru Kenya where I went with Karen prior to meeting up with Rashi (we went for a run and there were giraffes and chimpanzees in the middle of the road) and now Les Diablerets Switzerland. Les Diablerets is a small ski town in the Swiss Alps. I was fortunate to get the opportunity to attend a conference there for a week in June. Every morning, I went for a run along the river that runs from the glaciers and through the sleepy little town. There is a biking/running/cross country ski path that runs along the river. And were the path ends, well, there is a road that passes by all the farms with the sheep and cattle to keep you company. What a beautiful place. I hope that I get back there again someday.
