A Perspective on Perspective

By Scott Ludwig

I realize it’s difficult for a runner to talk about running without ‘dropping numbers.’ After all it’s practically impossible to tell someone what you’ve accomplished in a pair of running shoes without them. (I’m still talking about numbers here—not runners because some run barefoot, wearing sandals, etc.).

It wouldn’t make much sense to tell your neighbor you ‘ran a race of considerable distance’ because that’s about as vague as telling them you don’t pass gas much. Rather, stating you ran 6.2 miles in less than 60 minutes and your pace was just less than nine-minutes per mile makes much more sense and is a lot easier for your neighbor to grasp.

So many people I meet are intimidated by trail running. I hear things like “Aren’t there bears?” or “Don’t you get lost?” I smile and answer yes to both. Then I explain how they can get into trail running with far less apprehension of the things we cannot control. In this segment, I will discuss how you can get to know the trails so you don’t feel as though you are going to get lost.

First, I suggest joining a trail running group that has people that run around your pace and distance. Learn some new loops, meet some new people you can potentially run with outside the group run and have fun!
