At the end of March we went away for a couple of days. Our first stop was Torquay. We stayed in a hotel right on the sea front and obviously had a room overlooking the car park!!
The first morning there I went for a run from our hotel along the sea front, around the marina, towards the town a little and then weaved my way back to the sea front. I’ve never been to Torquay before so a run felt like a good way to explore the area and do a little bit of sight seeing. As I was running to explore I made it a fun run, meaning I wasn’t worried about pace and took lots of pictures.
The map made me laugh as it kind of looks like Lobster or crab claws! I saw a couple of runners whilst I was out who were friendly and said “Morning” After my run I went and rehydrated with a Costa Coffee on the sea front which was lovely. I then went back and had a shower before exploring Torquay some more. Whilst I was walking to the town centre I saw one of the runners I’d seen earlier still out! I guess he was probably marathon training!
Do you use runs to sight see when you’re somewhere new?
Have you ever been to Torquay?
