13 Things You Should Know About Trail Running

Since I've been training for my first trail half marathon, I thought it would be fitting to share with you a few things I've learned throughout the training process. While it's been a long and challenging three months of preparation to reach this little goal of mine, I just logged my very last long distance run before the big day – 12 trail miles to be exact.

Not to mention what a normal week, month, year, etc. would entail. Needless to say it's a huge life change and can be a little overwhelming. ...more
