@RunningBirder I'll preface my remarks by saying I definitely need work on this skill. I went to a trail-running workshop once where this was addressed. They said you should just kinda go with gravity, lift up thy hands to the heavens, and let it rip. This seems to work well on short dips with an obvious run-out, but on sustained downhills I find myself accelerating too much. I throttle back, take shorter steps. 

I feel like I'm not doing it right. So I am keenly interested in this topic. I was hoping you'd get more replies by now.

By the way, I think I'd qualify as a "running birder" too! (Probably more like a constant birder.)
