"A runner needs to cross train to keep their body in balance," says Leanne Kemp, who has run two marathons and several other distance races. "I discovered my love for hiking when we moved to southern Utah. My running has improved greatly because I hike. Hiking allows your body to take a break from the pounding, and build up strength and endurance. I get the same high when I get to the top of a mountain as I do when I get to the end of a race."
