Athens isn’t a particularly runner-friendly city (too many narrow streets and crazy drivers), but I’m fortunate enough to live near Lykavittos Hill. At 908 feet above sea level, with the sea just a stone’s throw away, Lykavittos Hill is the highest point in Athens. A hike to the top provides a serious workout and gorgeous views of the city. There’s even a 19th century chapel, an open-air theater, and a restaurant at the peak. I’ve decided to make the hike up Lykavittos Hill my new daily workout. I’ve made the loop daily for the past three days. So far, so good! (That said, I was very dedicated during the first two weeks of Insanity…) For those of you who come to visit, you could take a cable car to the top… but bring your sneakers because we’ll be hiking it!
