I am officially in love with trail running! I went on a 6.5 mile run with the Halve Mein Hash House Harriers in the Plotter Kill preserve outside of Schenectady, NY last Saturday and it was a great workout!
I loved the feeling of running in the woods, dodging tree branches and smelling the pine needles and being surrounded by the trees with their lush green leaves.
I was initially scared of trail running because of the risk of an ankle injury. I did roll my ankle several times over the course of the run, but I had no ankle pain the next day, so I am looking forward to my next run in the woods!
