Location. Location. Location.
Welcome to Fitness Friday!
Our summer vacation inadvertently turned into a fitcation simply due to the locations. First stop, the Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg, TN. We did all the touristy things but my favorite part was running and hiking in the Smoky Mountains. The scenery was breathtaking. During one early morning run on the Gatlinburg Trail I envied the locals for having such a beautiful place to run right outside their door.
Next stop, Seabrook Island, SC. Totally different scenery but just as amazing for running.
The scenery wasn’t just for running. We also hiked in the Smoky Mountains. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.! While on the island we rode bikes everywhere and went for walks on the beach. I couldn’t get enough of being outside and the fresh air. Of all the things we did, staying active and being outside was my favorite part of the whole vacation.
Vacation is a time to relax and unwind. That is what being active and being outside does for me. It clears the mind and it’s invigorating.
