Central Park is one of the most iconic sites in New York City. Situated like an oasis between the skyscrapers, this massive expanse of green is a haven for New Yorkers and tourists….and runners.
Running in Central Park feels like a rite of passage for a runner. Or maybe just for me.
First of all, Central Park is MASSIVE. There are a zillion different ways and routes for runners in Central Park. From road to trail to sidewalk, every runner can find their perfect route.
But for me? I found my perfect running route in Central Park.
Lap after lap after lap around the Reservoir. I have never been so happy to run in circles.
Three loops. 4.77 miles.
One happy me.
What about you? Where is your happy running (or walking, or just “being”) place?
