So a light running review of our trip:
Seattle- super easy to run. Our hotel was downtown, so we ran along the waterfront all the way past where the ships dock. If you want or need hills- they are all over the place as well. Great city to work out in.
Juneau- it appears that this is a good place to run, but we did not, as we were doing a whale watching, glacier hiking tour. The hike wasn't too hard, so all in all, we didn't get a massive work out.
Skagway (which I hope is similar to Ketchican for the OP)- had a great time there, and didn't really scratch the surface of working things to do. We started doing a simple run, which really meant going out of town (since it's small). Doing that, I ran by a garden that I thought was a lot farther out- and in there, the hostess suggested a route up a hill and to a lookout- GREAT! Hard run, but we ended up at a spot that tours go- picture two runners among people getting off of small busses.
We stopped for a bite at the same place, where we got another suggestion for a non-nomal hike- past the end of the airport. Really cool thing to do. And there is still tons of hiking trails that we didn't even start. really want to return.
Victoria- another great town- from the port, there's a trail that goes out of town for at least 3 miles, and it's easy to keep going. Doing that, plus a senic run down the pier + a loop into town was a very nice 9 miles. The run back into town was kind of tight, but we were ok with that. Great town to run in.
that's all I can review, since that's all we did.
"quite a few" Cruises so far, all on Royal Caribbean. Yea, we are loyal to Royal...
Our first was on the Monarch, and we were on her last RCCL...
More to come. Being cruise nerds is fun.
