Introduction I have enjoyed running since childhood, but it was not until about 1989 that I became really active again after being challenged by my brother to complete a 100K bicycle ride. He saved my life. I met cyclists who were also runners. Soon I was running beyond the 5 and 10K's. After my first Marathon in '98 I thought I would never run that far again. Then the pain subsided and I was back at it. I trained on trails occasionally but did not begin running trails in earnest until the spring of 2005. The serenity of trail running is what keeps me wanting to run. I believe we should be able to "relax" while running. Sure, we all want to improve and we should continue to challenge ourselves, but trail running offers us the opportunity to take it easy and enjoy nature on those days when we are recovering or not feeling our best. The San Antonio area offers many fantastic venues for trail running. I don't have a set training plan other than just get out and run, run,and have fun! email;
