When I travel and have space to squeeze my running sneakers into my suitcase, I’m usually happy to start the mornings off with a scenic jog.
If it’s an area I don’t know, it also gives my my bearings in a new town or city.
On a recent trip to the Bahamas, it turned out being an ideal way to enjoy the peace and quiet of the white sand beaches and turquoise waters in the hours before the hordes hit the shore.
And there is something about early morning jogs with the sound of the waves accompanying you that manages to even put a not-by-a- long-shot-early-bird person like me in a good mood.
