I arrived a bit early as I wanted more than a 5K workout. I registered & then ran the course once by myself. It was muddy and had many technical challenges. Plenty of steep downhills, steep uphills, rocks, roots & mud. Even a log to jump over! I managed an easy jog through in 38 minutes....Thing 1 was mortified it took me that long! Oh well! That's just the way I roll on the trail!!! LOL!
There ended up being several other runners there that I knew, including 2 others from my Ragnar team & a few from work.

I have to say though that I was thoroughly EXHAUSTED after the race. After a really tough 15 miles the day before, racing on the trail was SO much harder than an easy 3 or 4 hours out there with no time pressures!
I can't believe our 50K is only 6 weeks away!
