I’m training for the Victoria Half Marathon on 10/10/10. It is challenging finding interesting running routes for my Sunday long run – Vancouver’s Seawall is a great route, but I was looking for something new.
On Sunday, I took the SkyTrain to New Westminster’s Braid Station and ran home, following the new Central Valley Greenway. It is ridiculous having to travel 2 cities away to get a 20km run in, but the Central Valley Greenway is a gorgeous running route. It is sheltered from traffic with only a few intersections to cross, there are water fountains along the route so I didn’t have to bring a water bottle, and there are even some blackberry bushes for energy boosts.
