New England is a runner, jogger, walker paradise. If you live in or visit New England, this book will help you find the best exercise or training routes. The goal is to remove barriers to spending time outdoors building fitness, while enjoying the region. The Fun on Foot model is a simple one. The easiest and most effective way to keep fit and control weight is to run, jog, or walk in attractive, comfortable, and interesting environments. There are many excuses for skipping exercise, which is frequently considered a chore. Exercise needs to be easy and enjoyable if we are to do it regularly. When armed with the right information, on-foot outings can be interesting and enjoyable. Given a route with attractions, no comfort concerns, and a good eating and drinking place to finish up, these excursions can be fun. The authors visited the major population centers of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, and Vermont, and selected the most enjoyable exercise places. They documented many excellent routes around Greater Boston and such cities as Providence RI, Hartford CT, Stamford CT, Manchester NH, Portsmouth NH, Portland ME, Burlington VT, and Worcester MA. Over 40 cities and towns are covered, including the major tourist destinations of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, and Mount Washington. There are over 120 illustrations, including maps and photographs.
