If you’ve ever wondered how to get started trail running, or you’re already a runner who enjoys going off-road, this episode is sure to motivate you to head out into nature for your next run. Running coach Lisa Taylor again joins Heather Durocher on the podcast to talk trail running. Reader questions are answered on the show and touch on topics such as must-have gear, safety precautions, trail etiquette and how best to find runner-friendly trails throughout Michigan. Trail races held throughout the state and how logging miles on different terrain is good for the runner’s body is also explored. Lisa and Heather’s love of trail running will leave you looking forward to logging miles in the woods, off the pavement.
