3 Benefits of Enjoying a Healthy Lifestyle With a Half Marathon Vacation

Do you love to travel just as much as you love running a half marathon? Then it’s time for you to combine your two loves and travel to a destination race in order to make the most of a healthy lifestyle. Not quite convinced to center your next trip around a running event? Keep reading and you might just start packing your running shoes for a half marathon vacation.

Look Forward to a Change of Scenery

If you’ve been running your local half marathon for years, then chances are good that you already know the running course by heart. In fact, you might even know the route so well that you don’t even bother paying any attention to the scenery while running. But shouldn’t a race be full of fun and excitement? Shouldn’t you be excited to see what type of scenery awaits you around the next bend? With a race far away from home, you’ll have new scenery to look forward to with every running stride.

Discover a New City on Foot

The best way to discover a new city is to travel on foot; it allows you to see things that you might otherwise miss when merely driving through. That’s why most cities have guided walking tours. But why walk when you can run? A destination race will enable you to discover a new city while working your way towards your running goal.

Avoid Vacation Weight Gain

Love to try new foods while on vacation, but hate the dreaded vacation weight gain? Running is your solution. You’ll be expending a massive amount of calories during your half marathon and should be able to completely avoid any vacation weight gain.
