Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path- What is your path?  Believe in the spirit of God and Jesus along with the belief you have of yourself.  Those two beliefs coupled together will take you to amazing places. 

Philippians 4:6-7 In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God will surpass all understanding.

Becoming Ultra host and founder, Scott Jones, fields questions from the audience.  Can I play kickball tomorrow night, just a few days after a marathon?  How do I speed up recovery?  What are best strength moves for uphill running?  How many miles a week when I am not training for a specific race? We think you'll enjoy this one!

Trail etiquette is important for all the outdoors people to assure we are being respectful and diplomatic on the trails.  Represent your outdoor recreation as a mountain biker, runner, hiker, backpacker, equine rider or hunter.  The important thing to remember is that we all have love for the outdoors, which means we are not that different!

 

Check out the podcast The Hunting Collective EP:73 to learn more about trail etiquette coming from a hunting perspective.
