I run the (very flat, easy to manage) trail near my house all the time and love it. I actually prefer it to the road. Because of this, I have always talked about doing a trail race and boy did I dive in.
I didn’t go with a 5K or a 10K to start with, nope. In true Abby fashion, I went directly to a half marathon. Not just any half marathon either… a half marathon that is just about a week away and one I know nothing about. Is the trail flat like the well manicured one near my house? Or am I in for a challenge? Who knows?
Excited. Scared. Nervous. Mostly just excited.
Have you ever run a trail race before? Any tips?
