My first trail race! Ah, the memories.

Huh, interesting. Farther, not as much climb, looks like it was really hard due to the conditions that year! Cool that it was your first trail race ever. I love Dad's comment "Just think what you could do if you deigned to train." Classic!

And it looks like the distance changes from year to year! Is it really going to be 8 miles this year, I wonder? Pondering.

He says that at least once a month. :) But it finally worked: I got a coach.

I don’t think it actually changes, just that GPSes are inaccurate in woodsy hilly areas. Haven’t compared, tho. Assume 8 miles and less climb per mile, and you won’t be far off.

Ive run it; its a fun race. Last time I ran it the ground was covered in ice and snow. I ended up beating some of the Villanova girls track team not because I run fast (cause i don’t!) but because I wore my O shoes with studs in them :)

Sandy! I love that story. The O shoes and training seemed to really help me too at the Chilly Cheeks. Want to do the Mudder with me this year?? :))

hughmac4 - not your first trail race. Fathers' Day years ago somewhere or other with me 2 x 10km. Race started with a "release the hounds". You'd not trained for it AT ALL.

Oh yeah, you're right! Hahah. And I went out way too fast, and you caught and beat me. SO this was my first "real" trail race, in that I actually had been running some.

Need to find those results somewhere ... what the heck was the race name, I forget.

Hope you heal fast.
