Hi, I'm Randall, and I'm out here in nature enjoying this trail and doing one of the things I enjoy most; (It) is trail running. And ultrarunning is a little bit different than marathon running.

First of all, you're on a trail of some sort, maybe in the snow, or in the desert, in the forest, and you're running really long distances, perhaps 50 kilometers, 200 kilometers or more. I personally run the shorter distances because it's difficult to find the time to train and trying to find a balance between family and work. The other thing is is that I'm very slow, and I've even come in last on one particular race, but one thing I enjoy most about it is that you're out in nature. I've been running in races, and one particular race where I was running about 40 kilometers by myself (=completely alone). But, it's a really enjoyable sport. You get to see nature; it's both good for the soul and the mind.

But you always have to go prepared with a GPS, perhaps on your wrist, water, and other necessities. Well, I gotta go.
