New Year's Day: Resolution Runs and State Park Hikes

A little fresh air may be the best cure for the holiday hangover.

Don't wait to put those New Year's promises to work: Patterson Park's annual 5K Resolution Run/Walk gets underway at 2 p.m. Wednesday—that's tomorrow—January 1. With a generous afternoon start, you can even afford to over-celebrate tonight.

Race day packet pickup begins at 12:30 p.m. at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church at 2638 E. Baltimore St. Proceeds from the event benefit Earl’s Place Transitional Housing.

Or, try another New Year's Day tradition if you want to spend more year time outdoors in 2014. Maryland state parks from Assateague to Rocky Gap, including Gunpowder Falls and Patapsco Valley, host hikes New Year's Day. Most are relatively short, family-friendly treks.

More info on the hikes can be found on the Department of Natural Resources website. Most of the hikes start sometime between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.—which should be manageable. And the weather, while cold, should be clear and sunny. Happy New Year!
