Instagram spotlights a new creative hashtag each week—and one of their most recent was #FromWhereIRun, a tag that trail and road runners from across the world use to share the gorgeous views that make their hard-earned miles #worthit. Case in point: this crazy spot on Kowloon Peak in Hong Kong. Keep scrolling to see some of the best the hashtag has to offer, then add your own next time you get out to pound the pavement.

This runner has the Diablo Foothills in Northern California all to herself. Cali looks like a true golden state from this angle. (Let's hope she has a solid pair of trail running sneakers to tackle that dirt road.)

You haven't seen a truly breathtaking mountain trail until you've run in the alps, says this Instagram post. And, at that point, we're not sure if the runner's high is coming from the workout or the altitude. (Want more trail running porn? These pics will stun you.)

Running photography might not be an Olympic sport (yet), but we think this view of the beach in Rio de Janiero is worthy of a gold. (And on the opposite side of the running spectrum, these winter running photos will make you psyched to run even when it's cold.)

As this runner says, "It's views like these that make the 5 am alarm worth it." (Even if you're not a morning person, becoming a morning runner might be worth it to score a scene like this.)

The caption on this Instagram: "Happy Fri-yay. Take a hike." When your hike comes with this view (and some wildflowers) from the Colorado Rockies, you don't have to ask us twice to start moving.

The best eye candy doesn't come in the form of muscles—it comes in mountains and miles along the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies.

Some beach days aren't for sunbathing and margaritas (though we're always game for one of these healthy margs), but for beachside runs in the late-summer sun.
