Like running, but interesting.

I'd like to take up trail running, or in my case, probably trail-light jogging. I am not a runner, I have never been a runner, I have always hated running and avoided it. What do I need to know?

Greater Seattle area if that matters.
One of the biggest reasons I hate/d running was because I am slow and was picked on and picked last a lot by classmates/siblings for this.
I recently read an article that inspired me to get past being slow.
The second biggest reason I hated running is that I find it boring. Trail running however, appeals to me as I love hiking and being in the forest. I have a number of perfect trails for running nearby, but then I think about how much I don't know about running in general. So, where do I even start? Shoes? Form? Rookie mistakes to avoid?
