I have a confession to make — I am not a good runner.
I try to go with my husband, who is a great runner, at least once a week. And I have done a 5K here or there too. But, I really don’t like it much.
The truth is that I used to enjoy it a lot more when we lived in Austin, as opposed to now that we are in Houston. I think that has a lot to do with the infrastructure and the views. Houston has two good options; Memorial Park and Hermann Park. But I miss the water of Lady Bird Lake and the running paths are still very close to car traffic here in H-town.
So I appreciate a good running trail and runner-friendly community. I will say that I think that Austin should be on this list, and Minneapolis also had some great trails too.
