Why Trail Running?:
I like all surfaces for races, but for training, trails are the best. Apart from the obvious advantages of environment, the varied terrain of trails enables a faster recovery. This applies more so for races.
Favorite trail food:
Nothing in particular. In long races, my tastes vary, so I don‟t always know what I will like – except I like variety
Best Advice to someone new to trail Running:
Some runners do amazing times in trail races, especially those with big hills. That could be you! Obviously you will need specific training to bring out your best. If you pick nice trails, training takes little motivation.
