Happy Trails

The beauty of Running is that there really are just so many ways to do it. Today was a trail run day. I needed ten and my cohort needed nine. We ended up with a happy medium of 9 1/2 miles on the trail.

Road running is so different than running on a treadmill. That being said trail running is so different than running on the road. Each has its own challenges and perks. Each pushes you in a different way.

These are the perks of running on the trail!
