What Trail Running Means to Me

You may have noticed that I’ve been racing less. There are lots of superficial reasons. Injury (I’m recovered). Lil’ Golden Trails (I do find time for long runs on the weekends). Not in shape (sandbagging). The truth of the matter is that I have very little desire to compete at the moment. However, I’m as passionate about trail running as I’ve ever been. I simply enjoy spending time in nature.

I came across an article on iRunFar by Geoff Roess. He said something that just spoke to me:

“Trail running should be a celebration of the land in which we choose to run upon” – Geoff Roess

Couldn’t have said it any better.

See you out on the trails!

    Very well said indeed. I only wish I have the same view on my runs as you do. I actually wish I could run more races but more training is also needed on my end. :)
