Lesson 4 | Brrr!
Icy. That’s what hit me when I got out of the car at event number

layers, with a scarf. It was the Winter Trail Series after all. Even though the
sun is up the air is still icy. ...

Star Struck
On Saturday morning I woke up at 6:00. Not great for a weekend, but I was happy to feel rested and getting into an earlier rhythm. Still lying in bed, I checked my Facebook, and saw that a new parkrun was starting that day and it was nearby. Keen for a chan...

Lesson 1 | First Trail Run
I remember seeing an action photo of a serious runner,
running up a steep hiking trail with a sheer drop on the one side and rolling
grasslands on the other.  This was the
spark that got me into the idea of trail running, although at the time I didn’t

Proof that lack of gear isn't an excuse
I came across this Facebook album , by Marcos Ferro , who photographed the 80km trail run,   Ultra Caballo Blanco . Ultra Caballo Blanco | Copyright Marcos Ferro It just proves, you can't use "not having the gear" as an excuse to start trail running. ;-) He...

Lesson 3 | What goes up...
The second event in the Trail Series was at the venue where
my very first trail run was. I was psyched, as I remembered the route from the

dawned on me that either my map reading skil...

The Gift of Timing
I went for a 10k run at lunch time. I want to get more conditioned for heat, as most of my training runs are early in the morning or at dusk. I definitely sweat a lot more, but wasn't abnormally thirsty. The route is along all the busy roads surrounding our...
