Scientifically unproven running-enhancement tips.

When I tell people I'm training for the Rut, the remorse in my voice leads them to believe I’m running the 50k,—the course that goes up Lone Peak—but it's actually the 12k baby Rut that's filling my psyche with images of being airlifted off the course. Don’t get me wrong, the 12k version has an unfortunate amount of steep elevation gain and elite runners, and will still be a major fitness challenge.

So how does a slightly subpar athlete prepare? I’ve invented my own running/walking/shuffling regimen, so if anyone regrettably signs up for an intimidating trail race, here’s a step-by-step guide to motivating yourself to get up and plug around the trails.
