    All these articles are very motivational, but I LOVE the picture! The main reason I sought out IR back in march was to feel powerful! And every day I train there I feel incredibly powerful. I've accomplished things that I thought I'd never be able to do just a few years ago!

    This is a great selection of articles! I see that this was posted in 2011, I would love a new top ten list for this year because there must have been great articles written since then.

    Trail Running vs Road Running, that has to be my favorite. I grew up hiking as a kid, and spent my 20’s doing the thing each weekend wondering where everyone else was, and what on earth were they doing if not taking in the glorious outdoors? As I picked up running again alongside my love of minimalist footwear, trail running became the natural evolution of my passions. When road running I feel a sense of competition with everyone in sight. Walking is out of the question, but when my cardiovascular conditioning dips, that rules out a good run on my local streets for my silly fear of being seen by strangers walking rather than running.

    Then you have nature, a far more forgiving place, despite the more treacherous terrain. From the softer surfaces, to the unpolluted air that surrounds busy roads, being in nature has a calming effect and brings me back to my childhood. If I want to stop, walk, simply sit and take in my surroundings, I can think of no better place. And if I feel like turning a run into a hike, that’s okay too.
