the cherokee 5 mile loop
on and off for 20 years
the views, the concentration it takes to stay upright, the varied terrain, the other trail runners, the peace of the trails
Hello, I am Amy and have been a trail runner for over 10 years. I have taken a 2 year break from running but am anxious to start up again and get back in trail running/racing shape. My dog, Slim, is 10, and is also an avid trail runner.
I have had the honor of knowing Jim for a few years now. He has done more for the trail running community than anyone else I know. He is a talented and amazing runner and also a brilliant race organizer. We are lucky to have Jim as part of our running community. I am proud to know him. I have met many of the trail runners and they are a supportive and wonderful group. We all share the "trail thing" and that is a bond that means we are all crazy, but in a good way.
