What I love about trail running is not just being out in nature. Trail running forces you to connect with your surroundings in a deeper way.
Racing through the forest & up the mountain is overwhelming and all encompassing. Your stress dissipates, your mind feels free, and your body seems to work better. You’re not just standing or observing, you’re learning and growing, you’re experiencing the terrain. Each step takes focus and care. It’s a straight line to mindfulness, feeling incredibly euphoric afterwards. I love trail running.
I am officially back in training and cannot wait to run, climb & bike up mountains by myself again. Now training for Alaska & Canada.
