Rave Run: Tampa, FL

Name: Ben Mena

Location: Bayshore in Tampa Bay, FL

Distance: 2 – 20 miles (you can make it as long, or as short, as you want)

Why I love this run: When most people think of Tampa Bay, they think of palm trees, water, sun, and fun!   Along this route you get everything.  I love running Bayshore because no matter what time of the day, there are always other people running or biking !  Once you’re done with the run, there are plenty of places to go afterwards – breakfast joints after a morning run and restaurants & pubs after an evening run.  But one of my favorite parts is that there are so many opportunitues to run with the dolphins – often times they’re swimming right along side of you!  Bonus: Bayshore is a great place to run if you’re in town for the Republican National Committee!
