Trail Running

Yesterday evening, my daughter wanted to go running. (nothing new there!) Since she craves variety, she suggested trail running. Running on the mountain bike trails in the local park.
We jogged to the park and started on the trails. I loved it! Running on single track dirt paths along the river bank was amazing! The running itself was easier than on pavement, as the ground was softer.
We went about 5 Km, but it hardly seemed like any time at all. Dodging tree branches, watching for roots, running up the bank, and avoiding mud puddles all required concentration, so I didn’t think about how far or how long I’d run.
I don’t know yet if I am ready for competitive trail running, as the races seem to be focused on endurance (think ultramarathon), but I know where to go if I do choose that route.
