Running Trails

After following Ingrid Wilson of Off The Grid running trails last weekend, I've got the bug!  Enough with the concrete...let me at the dirt!

You know me, I don't wade into anything.  Once I get an idea in my head (Sally says that has become more rare), I grab onto it with gusto.  That attitude may have something with how I learned to swim...told to leap into the deep end of a pool and scramble my way up and to the side.  But I digress...

I've become a bit bored of running the streets around our home recently.  We've got hills and trees so there's variety and there's hardly a straight road...we're not in a grid format.  But after the years of running, I need something to spice it up.  Running trails has grabbed my attention. The challenge now is to find some off-road trails I can run in my neighbourhood.  I'm up for the challenge!

And looking forward...I'm a planner...I see trail running races a big part of 2018.  I have my eye set on a big one in Algonquin Park north of Toronto.  That one will kill two birds:  A trail run and a vacation in Algonquin Park, something Sally has always wanted to do.  Shhh...don't tell her!

If you live in and around the Greater Toronto Area and have a special off-road trail you like to run, please drop me a line:  chris@thatrunninguy.com

Here's just one photo of Ingrid, off the grid.  This looks like just soo much fun!

Thanks Ingrid!  See you on the trails...

Until next time...
