Running in Rome - My Daily Commute

People often ask me, "Where do you run in Rome?" While there are some great places to run such as the Appian Way, Villa Pamphili, or even the streets of old Rome on an early Sunday morning, my running consists primarily of my almost daily 20K run to work.

This weekend I had to run (figuratively) to work so I decided to run (literally) and take some pictures since most of the year my morning commute is in the dark and there is not much to see. While not the most pleasant run, my route along the Tiber is definitely varied and includes busy boulevards, passing through Roma camps, sections of bike paths and even a bit of dirt as I pass through a farm before arriving at the office. Here are a few photos…

Looks like some flat training. I bet you own the FKT for that route.
