With The North Face Endurance Challenge Race quickly approaching, I have started trail running to help prepare for the race. There aren't a lot of options for trail running in Central Ohio, but I did find a pretty descent place that's fairly close to me. Today was my second consecutive Sunday running this trail, and I increased my miles from 8 last Sunday to 18 this Sunday. I would like to get one more long run in of maybe 25 miles next Sunday on the trail as a confidence builder for running trails.
As I was running today, I realized that I am really more comfortable running on trails than I am on the road. It just seems more natural to me. I'm pretty sure if I lived somewhere that had an abundance of options for trail running, I would rarely run on the roads anymore.
Here's a clip of today's run:
