Is it 1 a subcategory (for lack of a better word) of it 2? The other way around? For instance, eating pizza is a subcategory of eating, or of eating Italian food? (that's just an example, not a guess as to what the its are, but if I'm right, cool)

Is it 1 a subcategory (for lack of a better word) of it 2? no The other way around? no For instance, eating pizza is a subcategory of eating, or of eating Italian food? so, no (that's just an example, not a guess as to what the its are, but if I'm right, cool Reminds me of my mum telling me that she had her very first pizza when she was 12, and well, there's no need to brag about that either, lol.)

A little clarification/BLOOOOPER: There is something like a third "it", and you would be tempted to brag about this one.
I said you wouldn't brag about the second "it" - You probably wouldn't brag about the first "it" either, but...

On a treadmill? no On a certain road? yope Or route? yope Or bike path? no

I think it's time for a little RECAP with clarifications before we move on:
There are three "it"s. They are all similar in that they involve running.
I run on a certain route (explore) several times a week, but I would never brag about it because there's actually nothing to brag about. However, an acquaintance of mine brags about having done "it". Her "it" is not my "it", but it's similar.
You would be tempted to brag about one of the "it"s, find out more.
Her "it" also involves having travelled somewhere.

I hope this was helpful, the "it"s are a bit confusing.

HINT: How many places are there? I can tell you that they share more or less the same name, but one of them is different. It's the one where neither I nor she have ever run.
And she probably has a scrund about the place(s).

Would figure out that it was actually Place 2 and not Place 1? no to all, don't pay too much attention to the "ish". The problem is that the places have something in common (not just their name), but place 1 is "better".

Is the shared part of their name derived from a company name (e.g. Disney)? Is it a more generic word commonly used to identify real estate developments (i.e. are they all called something like ___ Station or ____ Landing?). Is it derived from the name of an architect? An investor? A politician/head of state? The shape of the feature (e.g. ___ Tower)?

Are they owned by the same group/person? Is the shared bit of the name derived from a person's name?

Are they owned by the same group/person? Neither group nor person is the right word, but they're owned by the same, well, thing. Is the shared bit of the name derived from a person's name? no
HINT: The shared bit is an abbreviation.

Did she say she ran past the UN? YES, exactly! And it's finally time for the

********SPOILER********
An acquaintance of mine spent her Easter holidays in Switzerland and France. She's an avid runner and updated her status to let everyone know where, when and what distance she ran. Her status update from Geneva, Switzerland read: ran past the UN today.
In my opinion (and you could argue about that), the UN refers to the UN headquarters in New York City so that she didn't run "past the UN", just past some important UN buildings.
I live in Bonn where you find the "UN Campus", a complex of several UN buildings, and I run past it at least once a week. And I bet she has done that too because she's from here as well.


Okay, that was a long spoiler... Nice work everyone, and thanks for your patience with this one.
