Going on a run always sounds like the ultimate outdoor summer workout, but motivation to lace up your sneakers (and actually keep running after you start) can be scarce when it feels like an oven out there.

If you’re one of those people who low-key dreads the first 10 minutes of your run, Holly Koester, Barry’s Bootcamp instructor and running obsessive, totally feels you. That’s why she’s sharing her tips for turning her jogs into majorly energizing me-time—starting with her gorgeous route.

From beautiful Buena Park and along the Chicago Lakefront Trail to the Lincoln Park Zoo, she takes us step-by-step through her usual seven-mile loop (which you can track yourself in the map below).

Also among her long-run essentials? Her ASICS Cumulus 20s sneaks, which are cushioned with shock-absorbing gel, helping her feet feel just as fresh after a seven-miler as they do after a walk along the river.

Watch the video to see where her panoramic route takes her—and shop her look below.
