Tonight I chose to run on the trails in Pere Marquette State Forest. I picked out a short loop and figured I'd give it a shot. If it didn't work, well at least I tried. It was awesome! The soft sand and leaf covered trail was far easier on my knees than the roads and sidewalks. I walked all the downhills. That seemed counter intuitive in the woods to run the ups and walk the downs, but it was easier on me so that's what I did. In the end I got 4.9 miles in and came out of the woods with a huge grin.
QOTD: What's your favorite surface to run on?
I think my favorite surface would be packed sand covered with pine needles. It's like running on a cloud.
