Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: Where I’ve been, A-Z: Letters J-R!. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post.
Here’s a list of places I’ve been (letters J-R).
J – Jersey City, New Jersey. I used to date someone that lived in North Jersey (not too far from NYC) and we would always find cool places in New Jersey to visit on the weekends. We found a lot of cool places to eat in Jersey City.
K – *Kingston, Jamaica. I couldn’t come up with a city I visited that started with K, but I thought of a city I want to visit in the future. I’ve never been to Jamaica but am considering a trip to Kingston for my birthday next year.
L – London, England. I visited London around 7 or 8 years ago for work. I didn’t have too much time to explore while I was there so I didn’t run, but I got to see a lot of their “business district” since that’s where my job’s office was located. I was also able to explore a lot of restaurants with my co-workers.
M – Minneapolis, Minnesota. Minneapolis is such a cool city, especially for running. I’ve never done a race there (only visited for work) but I always found time to run and explore when I had free time.
N – New York, New York. Of course I had to pick New York, NY for this letter. Although I have run tons of races in NY, the most epic one was of course the New York City Marathon. Granted you don’t run the whole race in Manhattan, but you do end the are there so that’s most important, lol.
O – Ohio. On of my best friends lives in Cleveland, so I have visited Ohio numerous times. I also ran the Cleveland 5k and half marathon back in 2019.
P – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I always love running in Philly! I’ve done a few 5ks, 10ks, 15ks and half marathons there, and I have also spent some time in the city when my friend was going to college there. It’s a short 2.5 hour train ride from where I live so it’s easy to shoot down there for a weekend which is nice 🙂
Q – Quebec, Canada. I’m cheating a little bit with this one. I’ve been to Montreal, which is the most populated province in Quebec, so it sorta counts, lol.
R – Richmond, Virginia. Most of my dad’s family lives very close to Richmond, so we also visit this city whenever we go down there to visit.
Tell me: Where is the coolest place you have visited or run?

Topic for next week – Where I’ve been, A-Z: Letters S-Z (this topic was borrowed from Judy). We hope you’ll link up with us!
Debbie @ Deb Runs says
You’ve visited some great places. I had to stretch it with the letter Q as well. 😉
Thanks for the linkup and motivating me to finish my draft!
The letter Q was a hard one!
Oh, I agree, the New York Marathon is epic! I did it in 2010 and I remember it as one of the loudest races I’ve ever done. Great vibe and great crowds.
I like how you solved for “Q”!
Yes, NYCM was such a loud race. For most of the race I couldn’t hear my music lol.
Kimberly Hatting says
Maybe by next week, I’ll be able to organize my thoughts to finally assemble an alphabet-themed post. I do have an awesome “Q,,” though…Quad Cities Marathon 🙂 Philly is such a great city! I thought the downtown was nice, and let’s not forget the museum steps (ala Rocky)!
Oh that’s an awesome race for ‘Q’!
Next time you head to Richmond you need to stop in Northern Virginia for a break — I’m sure Deborah and Deb would join me for a meet up!
Oh absolutely! I haven’t been back to visit for a few years but next time I go I would love to meet up with all of you!
These are some great cities! A birthday trip to Kingston sounds awesome. BTW I think all five boroughs are technically part of NYC (the people who live there would definitely point that out) so you’re good with New York, NY.
Nice job with Q- I think visiting Quebec would be valuable if only for the opportunity to get a Q for the alphabet game!
Q was so hard! Technically I could have used Queens, NY but I didn’t think that was fair since I was born there, lol.
Darlene Cardillo says
Nice job and choosing great places.
NYCM was epic.
Paris was my second favorite place.
I would love to visit and run in Paris one day.
I love to read where you’ve been. I need to bookmark this blog idea for a later time.
It’s a really fun diea for a post and also lets you walk down memory lane!
Deborah Brooks says
This part of the alphabet is more challenging for sure! I am inspired to join in and do mine as well this week. It is fun to see where everyone else goes too!
Oh for sure! I really had to think hard for some of these, lol
Montana @ Pretty Lil Mudder says
This is a cool topic! I loved Philly when we visited earlier this year that’s definitely someplace I’d like to go back to. I love living so close to the northern cities it’s an easy drive to like 10 major cities from me. I’d say the coolest place I ever ran was the mountains in New Jersey I fell in love with that course it was so beautiful and mountain running is amazing!
Philly is a really great city for running and walking – so much to see and do!
Zenaida Arroyo says
I keep saying that I would love to spectate the New York City Marathon. I have two nephews that live in NY and I am sure they would love to have me. Some of these letters are challenging but you did a nice job with them.
I have run, spectated and volunteered at NYCM and they were all such fun experiences!
Great list! And Q is hard 😉 I keep saying I’m going to get my act together to do an alphabet post – work is making blogging tough these days!
There are some letters in the alphabet that I just knew were gonna be left blank lol
I have a feeling I’ll probably be using Quebec too when I get this done. I love Montreal. Your cities are on my list of places to go. Except of course our beloved N
Nothing can be our beloved New York for N 🙂
