I'm going to be spending some time in Paris, Barcelona, and Madrid this summer, and I'm planning to devote a day or two in each city to sighteeing while running. I'll plan out a route, jog through the city, take in the architecture and the scenery, stop to snack or stretch, and keep jogging. I figure this would be a great opportunity to step into some cathedrals and look around, but I'll be wearing brightly colored running shoes, shorts, and a sleeveless shirt. If I'm running for several hours I'd prefer not to carry a bunch of stuff in a backpack, so I'm trying to get creative with ways to cover up. Anyone have any suggestions for fanny packs or running packs that aren't unwieldy, and/or suggestions for a lightweight dress I could wear to fit into a small bag? I know that people in Europe don't usually wear neon running shoes for day-to-day nonathletic activities, so I was wondering if my shoes might be inappropriate for church visiting as well.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
