It won’t be my first-ever 5k, but it will be my first-ever 5k on trails. Tomorrow, I run the Bucks County 5k starting in Washington Crossing Park in Pennsylvania.
These past 8 weeks, I’ve been training primarily on wooded trails throughout the Wissahickon, here in Philadelphia, with occasional city runs out my door on a mix of concrete pavement and park terrain in my home neighborhood.
Here’s a super short video blog I made about this experience and my realizations that I hope you enjoy:
What’s next? I’ve already downloaded the 10k Runner app and am looking for a good 10k with more interesting and rugged trails to run in early 2014. Any recommendations?
