Top 6 Tips For Bexley Runners
One of the many things people love about Bexley is the active lifestyle! With miles of multi-surface trails, running is a favorite for many of our residents. Stop by, and you’re almost sure to see someone jogging in the neighborhood. Whether you’re new to running or have a stack of marathon medals, here are our best tips for running in Bexley.
1. Timing is Everything
One of our most important tips is to carefully select what time you run. Summer afternoons in Land O Lakes can be hot, so run in the morning or the evening, when the sun is not at its peak. Mornings tend to be more reliable, as evenings often bring Florida rain.
2. The Great Indoors
If you do want to run in the middle of the day, or just prefer an indoors environment, our fitness center is equipped with treadmills, as well as other cardio equipment. The fitness center is open from 4 a.m. to 11 p.m.
3. Mix it Up
With miles of multi-surface trails, you can run every day and never get tired of the same old scenery. Whether you want to run around one of the ponds, on one of the boardwalks, or through our parks, there's something for everyone. Even if you stick to the same trail, you might be surprised one day to see ducks, turtles, sandhill cranes, or other avian wildlife!
4. Incorporate Other Exercises
Not only are our trails a great place to run, they’re a great place for a full-body workout! Our Boot Camp Loop has 5 outdoor workout stations that are a great way to break up your running routine.
5. Grab a Partner
Running is better with a friend! Our miles of multi-surface trails - perfect for strollers, young bicyclers, or furry friends.
6. Stay Hydrated
Bring a frozen water bottle with you to cool off on hot days - it will melt during your run, so you don’t have to worry about your water getting warm! Bexley also offers the Twisted Sprocket Cafe where you can grab a refreshment!
