Runner's World Complete Guide to Trail Running

Trail Running is one of the fastest growing segments in the sport of running. And it's easy to understand why:

"To run on the road is a staccato one-two, one-two. Insistent. Hurried. Relentless. Once you reach the trail, footfalls become muffled, silent even, and instead you hear your breath. On the trail, the rhythm comes from a deeper place inside you--your lungs, your heart, and your head--as you hear your breath enter and leave your body. It's a slower metronome, one infintely more relaxed, than on the road."--Dagny Scott Barrios
