A few months ago, I posted about the trail running community and how great it is. Well, I can say I was humbled by this community again when I asked the question: Why do you love running trails?
I have been running for the past 2.5 years, and most of my experience has been on the road. Completing 3 marathons, numerous half marathons, 10ks, 5ks, and even an obstacle race or 3, I never had any real experience with running trails. However, after completing my 2nd marathon, I found myself unmotivated and almost ready to leave running behind. That’s when I found ultramarathons and trail running.
