My dogs are fast, not me
When you can't change the direction of the wind adjust your sails.
I've got a fever...
I've done it... Lots of fun. Very different vibe.
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
You'll ruin your knees!

The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Walk the steep hills, focus on fun and the roots, rocks and ruts, and enjoy yourself.
Of course that event only had one hill, and that climb only in the first half (but it was a heck of a climb).
Suddenly I'm curious about trail running. Who here has done it? Would you recommend trying it or not? Is there a certain level of running someone needs or SHOULD be at before trying it? What are the increased risks of injuries?
