Trail Running is certainly an odd blend of community and introspection.  We are there when you misstep one of the three r’s (root, rock, rutt) and need a helping hand up and at the same time, we appreciate the silence of the woods as we zip and zag through a single track.

The great writers at Canadian Trail Running Magazine have pulled together this incredible list of 13 questions you should never ask a trail runner. As you read through them I am sure you will be smiling and bobbing your head in as much agreement as I was.

Here were a few of my favourites:

  1. It took you two hours to run 4K? I thought you were fast?
  2. Did you know you could take the gondola up to the top of the mountain?
  3. Where do you go the bathroom?

For a read of all 13 questions you should never ask a trail runner, be sure to check out the full article here.
