7 Signs You Might be a Bad Trail Runner

  1. People ask you to demonstrate your ability to touch your ankle bones to the ground

  2. Your running partners chipped in and got you elbow pads and shin guards for Christmas. 

  3. Your nicknames include root sweeper, tree checker and thud. (Yes I borrowed some trail names from Medoc Trail Races.)

  4. You get lost so often that you are on a first name basis with the local K9 police officers and their dogs.

  5. Someone put a sticker on your Camelbak that reads: Caution Frequent Stops.

  6. People ask why all of your GoPro videos are in slow motion.

  7. The last time you fell down on the trail, park rangers tagged your ear and put a GPS tracker on your ankle for your own safety.
