You’ve got a big trip planned this summer, or maybe you’re traveling right now for a spring getaway to someplace tropical — what are your plans for keeping up with your running and exercise routine? This episode gives you ideas for getting your sweat on during vacations, family excursions or business trips. Sometimes it’s not too difficult to fit in exercise — you might be following a training plan and getting the chance to run outdoors, along a new, shady path, can be pretty amazing. Sometimes, though, it can be tough to find the motivation (beach walks and poolside cocktails are calling!) Heather, who just returned from a family spring break trip down south, is joined by running friends (and frequent MRG podcast co-hosts) Lisa Taylor, Pam Carrigan and Erin Henshaw. Each runner shares memorable explorations by foot in far-flung destinations as well as places throughout Michigan that are not too far from home. They all agree: having the chance to discover a new city or locale through running is pretty special.

(You’ll hear Heather talk about a state park she and her family plan to visit this summer, but she couldn’t recall the name of it, and this is the spot she’s talking about: Palms Book State Park in Manistique — Kitch-iti-kiwi, The Big Spring)
