It’s the perfect time of year for trail running. The weather is cooler in the morning, the leaves are turning and the light has that orangey-golden glow that you don’t see any other time.
When I’m running races I usually stick to the road for long runs. The normal advice being if you are running a distance event on the road you should train on the road so that your body becomes used to that surface.
But now that I don’t have a race on the calendar in the near future I can hustle my bustle into the wild. Or semi-wild. Because if you’ve ever run with me on the trails (or in my neighborhood at 5:30am) you know I’m not a huge fan of critters and scurrying things. Squirrels, in case you didn’t know, sound really, really big skimper-scampering through the leaves. Just sayin’
Anyway. I’m back to Sunday trail runs until the rain forces me back on the road. So join me. Get off the treadmill. Take a break from your normal ‘hood run. Come home with leaves in your socks and dirt on your ankles.
You don’t have to go far. You don’t have to go fast. You just get to go.
This Sunday we’re meeting at the Ross Post Office at 8:00 am. Join the fun. Message me for details.
Now go run!
