When it comes to running on the road, Olympic medalist Deena Kastor is an expert with U.S. records in the marathon and half marathon and a bronze medal from the 2004 Olympic marathon to prove it. Always on the lookout for new challenges, the speedster decided to add trail running to the mix. Living in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., she has plenty of options, but a recent trip to the Alps opened her eyes to a new world of running opportunities.
During the journey, and based upon her previous trail running experiences, Kastor has developed a list of survival tips for road runners who want to log more miles on the trail.
