It's easy to get caught up in the busy routine but with summer's long days we have a chance to change it up every once in a while.
Make every Wednesday-Wild Wednesdays. We realize not all places have the access to wilderness as we would like but modify with what works for your location.
Here are our top ideas for Mid Week Escapes:
The Dawn Patrol Session
Wake up super early and drive out to that place with the incredible view that you usually save for the weekend. Get a view of the sunrise and drive back to town before work.
What to Bring:
For many of these Mid Week Escapes, it will be key to clean up before work. Bring two bags- one with your work clothes and the other to put your running clothes and dirty shoes. Have wet wipes ready for a make shift pre work clean up at the trailhead.
The Summer Sunset Run
Summer nights have always been my favorite time to run. It is warm but the setting sun offers some respite from the heat. With the late sunsets you can head out hours after dinner, enjoy running in a location typical for a weekday and don't worry about going to bed late. It is just one day out of the week.
The Weekday Camp Out
This is our ultimate Mid Week Escape idea and the way to really feel like you are beating the work week. Break out from work a bit early and head out of town. Go for a run, find you camp spot and sleep under the stars. Sure, you have to get up early to pack up and get back to town but its worth it. When you are back at work, a little disheveled and smelling like a campfire you won't be able to contain the smile from showing up on your face when you think about where you woke up.
