Factors that make a good running route
Just been thinking about how to choose a good running route for a blog post (http://www.runchaser.com/2012/10/choosing-running-route.html ) and come up with the following factors: terrain, elevation, weather, safety, pollution and purpose.
I think that running route choice can help reduce the risk of overuse injuries and help people get more enjoyment out of running. Particuarly for beginners this will make sure that they come back to the sport rather than be put off for life. Just wanted to share my thoughts with everyone.
