Today I ran my first ever trail race–8.2 steep, muddy miles through the forest. The temps rose into the 80′s but luckily there was a nice breeze and enough cloud cover to keep things comfortable. All I can say is that those hills kicked my rear end! This run was all about celebrating the beauty of our local state parks. I enjoyed every moment of my time on the trail today, even those darn hills. I really wished I could have taken some pictures of the gorgeous scenery, but you know, I was running and stuff.
It wasn’t my best time, but at least I got out there and did it, right? That’s got to count for something. Now let’s hope I can shake these jello legs by tomorrow. Right now I’m on the couch while the kids are running around like crazy wondering why mama’s actually resting. I think the laundry can wait until tomorrow, too.
Hope you all are enjoying your Saturday as well!
