I'm here today with a local hero, Cory Jennermann! Listen in for amazing running tips like how to find your robot legs, and how to use that song that's stuck in your head to make you faster.  Cory began running in 2004; barely making it over the line of the Victoria Times Colonist 10K. He was lucky enough to stumble into the killer run scene that is Vancouver, and now regularly competes (against himself) in a wide variety of endurance events.

The Trail Tips episode all about body image. We answer questions and share your comments and stories. Why are comments always about size and not about what your body can do? Does your body feel different after having a baby? 👶 Is it a mental battle to wear spandex shorts? Why do we care about all this crap anyways? We cover it all.

I was so lucky to chat with Amelia Bice, an up and coming trail runner in Australia. The 11 year old recently completed a 9.9km trail race, where she noticed a pain in her stomach mid race. She toughed out the race and ran to the finish, only to be taken the hospital to have her appendix out that night! She's now fully recovered and looking to build up to run 20km one day. She may be young, but she's full of wisdom.
