My wife and I started running in January. We decided we wanted to run a marathon, so we signed up for a half-marathon in Cincinnati in May, and we signed up for a full marathon in St. Louis in October! The marathon is a rock ‘n’ roll marathon, so it will have live bands playing while we run.
So… in the mean time, we have been running. Always running. We have found a lot of nice places in St. Louis to run. The obvious nice place to run is in Forest Park, especially in the winter since its trails are the best kept in St. Louis. In South St. Louis we sometimes run on the Katy Trail. More recently we have started running on the St. Vincent Greenway Trail and the Ted Jones Trail. These two trails are up in North County by UMSL. There are plans in the future to connect the two trails, and the Greenway trail will eventually run all the way down to Forest Park. Since we live in Normandy, it will be really nice to be able to run or bike all the way down to the park without running on busy roads!
For now, we’ll just keep running everywhere we can.
