Repost: Questions You Should Never Ask a Trail Runner

Originally published on Canadian Trail Running

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.
