In this Trail Running 101 episode, Dimity and Sarah are joined by mother trail runner Lisa Jhung to talk all about off-road running. A mom of two sons, Lisa is the author of Trailhead: The Dirt on All Things Trail Running, and she freely admits she “craves” dirt, crunchy rocks, grass, sand, and any natural surface. As in her easy-to-read book, on this show, Lisa makes clear trail running does not equal ultra-running. From how to react to bears and bobcats to how to find local trails, the three gals break down the intimidation factor of hitting the ground running. Lisa talks about the importance of having “all senses on” while on the trail, as well as the mental benefits of this approach.
