What I Worry About

I’ve been running for 32+ years, since 1979, and been trail running since about 1990. Over my trail running “career” my philosophies have evolved.

What I worried about in 1979:

What I worry about now:
  • Getting lost
  • Falling
  • Twisting an ankle
  • Running out of water
  • Running out of food
  • Not getting back before dark

I will say that “worry” is really not the right word.  I’m just a bit more cautious than I used to be…I guess it’s because I have more at stake, and the years have taught me that bad things don’t always happen to other people.
