How has my running changed over the last year you ask? Well, this week I will break my last year’s total mileage, which means I clearly upped my overall mileage, but what I am more excited about is that I am at almost

up 250% over last year’s elevation total.

No more roads. Roads stink, are boring, hurt my feet and legs and are wasted miles.

Trails, trails, trails. That’s where I feel most alive and get the most of my workout. Trails are not just for weekends and long runs anymore but are my daily dose of sanity check. Only downsides are that this means I have to drive to almost every workout and my pace is getting slower. But hey, trails, I love them, especially if they lead to mountain tops.
