Hi, my name is Rachel Schwab and I am from Raleigh, North Carolina. I love running in Tel-Aviv for many different reasons. The city is filled with interesting people, diverse landscapes and of course the paths are usually flat. I like that I can run only 5 kilometers in Tel-Aviv and see busy streets, beautiful parks and an open ocean along the beach front promenade. Every time you turn a corner you have a new and interesting view in front of you. Tel-Aviv is a fast paced city; the energy of the city and its people motivate me to run faster and further. After a run in Tel-Aviv I feel like I have learned about and experienced the city all while getting in my workout for the day. I look forward to the next time I can run in Tel-Aviv so that I can explore and learn more about this wonderful city.
