I knew it wasn't going to be the nice, mostly flat, plateau loops I've been used to, but I was woefully unprepared for what I found. It's not a running trail...it's barely a hiking trail!! The pictures won't do justice to what I saw in the .12 miles I ventured out on my own before deciding I needed a hand to hold in order to check it out further!!
Have I lost my mind? Am I really going to do this race?? What on Earth am I thinking?
Well...maybe I have lost my mind. I am really going to do this race. And...I'm not really sure, except that it's "only" 15.5 miles....just 2.4 miles further than I've already gone. I love the trails. There's a 5 hour cut off, but that seems very doable, especially since there are several runnable portions (according to the detailed coarse description). I think I can do it....just not today!
|It's worse than it looks.|
Thanks for stopping in, come again soon!
