I’ve been transitioning my running from the roads to the trails over the last couple of months. And although I’m no trail expert, I’ve learned some things along the way that might just help you if you are considering a similar transition. So here are my lessons, in no particular order.
"Hang in there Beck, you were made for this.” It was like he could sense when the pain was rushing in and I wanted to back off. My family has always been very supportive of my running goals. In middle school my grandparents drove me all over in their RV to participate in track meets, and my mom, well I don’t think she ever missed any of my races. But my Poppa’s voice was so pertinent, always shouting what I needed to hear just when I needed it.
