Review (and Giveaway!): Where the Road Ends: A Guide to Trail Running

***CONTEST IS OVER***

I love trail running. Being in nature, cruising on some single track – there’s nothing like it. So when I saw that fellow freelance writer and runner Meghan Hicks and her partner Bryon Powell wrote a new book about trail running, I definitely wanted to check it out.

Meghan and Bryon are contributing editors for Trail Runner magazine, and are also the brains behind iRunFar.com, a trail running and ultramarathon website. Needless to say, they know what they’re talking about. Not to mention that Meghan was the first female finisher of the grueling Marathon des Sables in Morocco in 2013. If you haven’t heard of it, go check it out. I’ll wait.

As the title suggests, Where the Road Ends: A Guide to Trail Running is a comprehensive guide to all things trail running. The book covers everything from running & trail technique to gear to how to deal with weather conditions to avoiding injuries. The only thing this book does not offer are training plans, but there is an entire chapter dedicated to creating a training plan yourself, including how to organize training phases.
