Originally, I was recently encouraged by the Toyota RAV4 Adventure Club contest to try a new local route.

But I am not at home.

Hitherhencetofore, locally venture I cannot.

HOWEVER. By the power of greyskull the MapMyFitness, I can adventure ANYWHERE I ROAM.

I am on an an exceptionally long road trip and it's been hard to adventure anywhere unless it involves a steering wheel, so when I finally made it o my parent's house I was all, "I'M GOING RUNNING. MY BUTT HURTS FROM SITTING. I WANT IT TO HURT FROM RUNNING NOW."

But not knowing the area (my parents recently moved), I wanted a little insight into good places to run. I visited the Toyota Rav4 Adventure Club (which is powered by MapyMyFitness), plugged in my location, and found a great map close to my parent's home (for the local 5K - PERFECT!).

I will admit, I vered from the map a touch and found a park with bronze statues and ended up chatting with another out-of-towner for about 10 minutes... and it was a GREAT run and a great little adventure. I mean, how often does a girl get to take a picture with a one-toothed man of bronze?

I believe his name is Doc Fickel.

See that lady and little guy behind me? That was who I chatted with for a bit. Nothing like a chat in the shade. This was around 10 in the morning and it was already over 80 degrees and that's pretty warm for this Pacific NorthWET girl...

Toyota motivated me to break out from the norm and discover a new route. This experience taught me that there is an adventure waiting around every corner!
