Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics! Today’s topic is trail running – yes or no?
I’ll be honest that trail running is a topic that I know little to nothing about since I’ve only done one trail race. Actually the race was half trail and half pavement but I guess that still counts right? I don’t have anything against train running because I think it has it perks (better scenery, easier on your joints) but it’s not for me.
I’m a Klutz
While I don’t fall too often running on the pavement (knock on wood), I am a bit of a klutz. I’ve been know to num into things (walls, furniture, etc). I just don’t feel like I should tempt fate and run on the trails. I would no doubt trip over a tree root or a rock, LOL.
I’m Scared of Animals
I know this might sound silly, but I’m terrified of coming across an animal, like a bear, or possibly a crazy squirrel. I’ve been startled by a squirrel popping out of a dumpster during a run so I can only imagine what I would do if I was startled by an animal while out on the trails.
