ENJOY. THE RUN. How running becomes a delight on vacation
Lace up your running shoes even on vacation in the mountains and actively recover with physical activity. Sarina berchtold tells us how to combine trail running with enjoyment and get to know the trails of Kleinwalsertal in a relaxed way.
"Most people chase after pleasure so much that they run past it."
What is pleasure actually? And how can you associate enjoyment with (trail) running?
a state of feeling or being happy or satisfied.
No wonder we chase after this feeling. What's bad is when, as Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard wrote, we run past it. Let's take vacation planning as an example. Vacation - the most pleasant time of the year. But many are already stressed before the trip even starts. Our everyday lives are often dominated by a lack of breaks, an excessively fast schedule and constant stress. We want to get the most out of our vacation, the supposedly most wonderful time of the year. We need a perfect accommodation, hike A, B and C must be done in EVERY case or we have to eat at a certain restaurant.
The attraction of trail running? It's not the speed that counts. It's the experience that counts. A constant change between up and down. Running laps that lead through different landscapes. Forest and meadow paths, root paths, rocky alpine paths. Fantastic views. Walking, running, puffing, seeing. All in one run.
