Boston is the #1 City of Runners

11/12/2010 01:52:00 AM
I'd like to say that I have a love/hate relationship with running, but in actuality it's a hate/hate relationship.  I hate running and running hates me, but I still do it.  What I can never bring myself to do, though, is run in the cold.  I just can't do it.  So I usually get in a good 6-7 months of running and get myself up to a decent number of miles and then when it gets cold, I try to keep it up on the treadmill but it never works.  Then when it warms up, I start all over.  It's a vicious cycle.

That being said, there are many others out there that brave the cold and/or the monotony of the treadmill and have contributed to making Boston the #1 city of runners according to the Daily Beast.

The Daily Beast partnered with, the fast-growing website and iPhone app where roughtly 1 million users enter and track running distance and other workout and calorie data. Using DailyBurn data, DailyBurn and The Daily Beast determined how far runners run, on average, in 19 of the biggest American cities in a typical one-week period.

#1, Boston, Massachusetts
Average miles run per week: 7.85
Favorite running spot: Charles River Reservation
