I had never done trails before; I don’t think I’ll go back to pavement. I had no idea how hard it was, but I loved the challenge. Plus, it was scenic, not boring.
I used to do Roller Derby and was looking for something to motivate me to drive myself to achieve things and feel good. I am more comfortable in the woods than anywhere else.
It was a chance to do something with my husband who is a runner. I started training this summer. The series was a motivator for me to keep going. It’s been really inspiring. The people who come are encouraging. I didn’t know all the trails were out there. They are challenging. It's fun to have other places to go.
It was a chance to see more trails and conservation lands. It was motivation to challenge myself. Today was my first half-marathon, and the series made me fit to do it. My wife and son also ran. I got to know some other people. It was great to see so many kids running trails.
I like meeting new people. It’s a community. The food was great. Signing up was so easy. I’m on for next year!
I love running. I’m on the cross-country team at The Peninsula School. My coach told me about it. You see things on the trails in the woods. It’s more fun and more challenging.
