Jan 27, 2022 02:36PM ● By ANN MARIE O’PHELAN

Now is the best time of year to get outside and pound the pavement, sand, or trails. There are runs, tours, and fantastic places to enjoy aerobic exercise. Runners and walkers alike reduce stress, lose weight, improve heart health, and lift their spirits. Here is a selection of activities and places where you can go the distance. 

The 2.5-mile Bonita Beach in Bonita Springs is a perfect place to take a walk or run along the white sand, all the while enjoying the marine life and seabirds. On the southern tip is Bonita Beach Park, with restrooms, a volleyball court, and picnic shelters.
