10 THINGS I WISH I'D KNOWN ABOUT TRAIL RUNNING BEFORE I STARTED

10 THINGS I WISH I'D KNOWN ABOUT TRAIL RUNNING BEFORE I STARTED

January 21, 2021

I started running on trails back in 2005. I was living on the eastern shore of Maryland and accidentally found myself running on a trail one day as a way to add some distance to my road run. I loved it from the first crunch of dirt and quickly found myself wanting to get as many of my running miles on the trails as possible. I liked how I’d sometimes get a glimpse of a turtle or a deer, how I saw a lot less man-made things, how the pine trees smelled, and how I didn’t have to worry about cars. I wrote this piece to help anyone who may just be getting into trail running, or who has always wanted to try it but wasn’t so sure it was for them.

Sometimes the best solution is to work out together. But what does that look like, exactly?

VENTURING INTO THE UNKNOWN

VENTURING INTO THE UNKNOWN

December 02, 2020

Life is full of challenges, some easier to overcome than others and over time, without realising it you fall into your comfort zone and drift through life, slowly adding kilo after kilo. That was where I was at the end of last year.

Running 100kms feels to me like I’m venturing into the unknown. I have never run more than 30km before entering this race so I’m questioning how my body will cope and of course, what will be going through my head.
