I mostly run around Seattle, up to ~20 miles on sidewalks and hills, but I need to figure out good places to practice trail running while also increasing my distance. I ran ~6.5 miles last weekend at Cougar Mountain in the snow, which was my first trail running in several years, and much tougher than I expected.
I'm mostly looking for suggestions about where to do trail running, particularly gearing up to 2-4 hour runs and 10-20 mile distances in the next few months.
I've been doing mostly road running for the last 3-4 years; I've done a few marathons and half-marathons, and also one 70.3 triathalon. This year, I've signed up for the White River 50.
