As president of ChemOps Insights, Donald (Don) Lee Pferdehirt leverages over 30 years of experience as an operator of chemical facilities to advise clients through his Spring, TX-based consultancy. An avid runner in his free time, Don Pferdehirt lives in a region that is home to a number of great places to enjoy a run. The best of these include:
This 445-acre park in the center of Houston gives runners the option of sticking to a two-mile jogging trail or taking a detour to explore the park’s hidden scenery. For those looking to extend their workouts, Hermann Park connects with Brays Bayou Greenway, a 31-mile, naturally formed park that stretches to the Houston Ship Channel.
Rice University Loop
Located across the street from Hermann Park, the Rice Loop takes runners on a 2.92-mile tour through historic Rice University. Flat and largely shaded, the loop offers views of the prestigious institution’s stunning architecture and public art displays.
Buffalo Bayou Park
The numerous trails throughout this 160-acre urban park allow runners the opportunity to consistently vary their routes. What’s more, Buffalo Bayou Park’s ample natural and man-made scenery, which ranges from lush woodlands to the Houston skyline, makes for a visually pleasing workout.
