Keep running!

Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one who endures that the final victory comes (Buddha)

I've heard about the Trail Running Film Festival first time when I was in Santa Cruz, California. The Festival was hold in Monterey an hour south of Santa Cruz.
Luckily, another running friend gave me a ride and during the ride a lot of trailtips and network connections for Santa Cruz.
I really liked the exhibition in front of, learning and meeting people there and the community projects. Also, to talk to other runners and sharing trail running dreams, been stocked after watching the film.
Corona: I can't complain. I can still go for runs on some beautiful trails here in Wanaka. Running on some awesome MTB trails in the forest just to have some beautiful views on the mountains and lakes. But I also know and had a great trail community before the lookdown and it would be just way more fun to share this trails and the fun again with other runners and I miss to chase the trails with others. I know that the mountains and real trails in the mountains are calling and waiting and can't wait to explore new trails again.
Aren't all trail runners dreamers, becoming kids again on the trails, but we have to play on the real trails. Just listening to podcasts or watching cool running movies might inspire us but in the end, we have to run and explore trails ourselves to feel alive. That'S the deal!
It's important to have a goal and keep running towards it. It makes the training and the way more interesting.
The Wild Things trailrunning community NZ asked for a our personal trail running dream when the lockdown is over.
I would love to run all over NZ. In the south, the north, the east the west. In the mountains and on the beach. It's basically everything possible here in a week with a little bit of effort. But even more important for me is to run with others, with friends, new or old. To share the trails and maybe sitting in the evening together around a cozy campfire and sharing other trail dreams.
Every runner knows, that a run can mean/symbolize a day in a lifetime. Easy, uphill, downhill, sunny, dark, warm, cold, runners high, crawling on your knees and crying. Sometimes we need a friend telling us to keep running, sometimes we have to be this friend for someone else. The trail running community is awesome. To all of you: Keep running, crawling, moving and hopefully see you soon again on the playground of nature. Sharing some trails, adventures and laughts. Keep running!
