When I started running and what got me started:

What I like about trail/mountain running:
Much more interesting than just running on roads, less wear and tear on the joints, better for the dog.

Been spending a lot time in the Garden of the Gods because it's close to my house, finding trails I never knew existed.

Favorite trail/mountain race and why:
Haven't run a trail race yet.

Best running experience:
This winter when it snowed and Zooey (dog) and I were the first people on the snow covered trail, it was completely silent except for the sound of our feet hitting the snow. It was a great run.

Worst running experience:
Long training run that started at the AFA north gate, wasn't dressed right, freezing cold winds, miserable.

Neatest thing found on a run:
A herd of bighorn sheep. I didn't keep them.
