PPM!

Worst running experience:
Running around Buffalo Mountain in Summit County. I went over the pass, and ran through a beautiful snow field. As the field ended, I realized that I had completely lost the trail. I ended up on the wrong side of a river, and had to "run" through the glacial river to find the trail again.
