If you’re an enthusiastic road runner and racer, it’s inevitable that you will eventually be drawn to the trails, whether you are enticed by the accounts of friends or the challenge of less stable, sometimes more strenuous footing or the desire to spend some time with Mother Nature.In this episode, I’ll introduce you to three first time trail-runners and share their experiences. I hope, if you don’t run trails, I can motivate you to run off road, once you learn the benefits of trail running.
This was originally published as an article I wrote for Florida Running & Triathlon Magazine. I write an article for each issue, and my articles always feature several runners tackling a new distance or type of race. This issue focused on people doing their first trail race.
