Over the past few years I’ve been paying attention (and no, not just to which company has the coolest trail shoes or best tasting beer).

I’ve been paying attention to the questions and frustrations runners share with me every day via email, and on Twitter and Facebook.

And as I work through those questions each morning, I keep noticing something that probably shouldn’t surprise me as much as it does.

It turns out most runners ask very similar questions. Questions like:

  • How can I adjust my training plan to fit my busy schedule?
  • How should I pace a trail race or ultramarathon on technical terrain?
  • How can I get through a long training cycle without another injury?
  • How do I start running again after an extended break?

And so many more.

These types of questions were coming up so frequently that I knew I had to put together something that addresses these issues. And I knew I had to offer it for free as a thank you for reading Rock Creek Runner.

TRCS-questions-300So today I’m crazy excited to announce that I have just released The Trail Runner’s Cheat Sheet.

The Cheat Sheet is a 10-part guide answering, in detail, the top 10 questions I hear from runners just like you.
