Runners Seeking More Thrills
We're all looking for something a little different from time to time.
There's nothing wrong with "shaking things up a bit", but these runners take it to an extreme. Check out this article from USA Today about runners who take to the mud, trails, mountains, hills and rivers to get a little extra in their efforts.
In Iowa, I'm always amazed at the number of people who participate in the Living History Farms Race. It is a true "cross country" race that travails fields, fences, creeks and other obstacles. Not exactly my way of running, but this event has sold out in the past.
If you're seeking a new running experience, perhaps this article provides some food for thoughts.
