Weekend Mileage Runs Summary for This Week – Jan 14-20

As a regular post column, we will be summarizing the best weekend mileage runs we have been able to find so you can gather miles without getting on your boss’s bad side…. If you are like us, the weekend is the only real time to travel and get some serious mileage under our belt. We define weekend mileage runs as a maximum of an after-work Thursday or Friday morning flight to Sun night back in your own bed. We are partial to AA and UA (with a little DL thrown in) but if you have a great weekend run, leave a comment with the mileage run details…. We want to grow a community here. We’ll be adding to this for 2-3 days so be sure to check back
