Mix a nice hilly trail in the woods with 2 weeks of rain, cover with well aged fall leaves. Make sure the mud is splashy and slippery. Sprinkle with just a bit of snow. Cool down to 35 F and run on it as fast as you can. Enjoy. Tastes like heaven.
First half a mile on forest road
Leaving gravel, starting on the trail
Soft and squishy
Slippery when wet
This section of the trail is always giving me a couple of arch bruises, working on more relaxation...
For 6 months I thought asphalt was the best. Wrong. After my first run on this trail some two weeks ago I got immediately addicted to trail running. I am a total BF trail runner convert now.
