Living where I do, my options are limited for routes. I hoping to run on this boardwalk around a pond (lake) very close to my home. It's stunning. As you can see, the snow hasn't all gone yet, but it will. My question is, is wood a good surface to run on? I don't like running on roads/ pavements, we don't really have any parks here and I thought that early on, at least, this would be good as its flat.
