FIRST trail race!

NOTE:  this was written Saturday 10/23/10...

I'm getting running to run my first trail race tomorrow.  Although I've run on part of the course an average of twice a week for the last couple of months...there are other parts that I've never even seen!  I wanted to sign up for the 15K.  This race is on Sunday morning at 8:30.  There's no way I'd have time to run 9.3 miles, shower and be at church by I just signed up for the 5K.

I don't know why I think this, but my guess is that it won't be a very big race...meaning...there won't be very many 40-45 year old women runners...meaning...surely I'll have a chance to win an age group placing!!  Having said that, I'm not going to set a goal, other than the hope I won't get lost, and that I can finish fast enough to get to church on time!!

If this goes well....I'm signing up for the McKay Hollow Madness race that will be in March of next year-it's a 14 mile (TOUGH) trail race.  It's one of those "you-have-to-finish-to-get-a-shirt" kind of races!

One race at a time.....

Thanks for stopping in, come again soon!  (In fact, come again tomorrow to see how I did!)


  1. 179 runners finished the combined 15km/5km. You should have done the more challenging 15km:)

  2. By the way, McKay will be 25km this year (15.5 miles) but don't tell anyone!


Don't hold back, tell it like it is....
