Just a quick post to let you know that I survived the 21K trail race. Survival is always the number one goal of any race, so success! My time was 2:01:??, so about a minute slower than my last half at this location. But I got second in my age group, so waaaahooooo!
I only bit it on the trail about 20 times. That is possibly not an exaggeration. After mile five I lost count, and at the end, when my feet were laziest, it was about every five minutes.
Here's a quick pic of my finish with my friend Brian. He really helped me as I struggled the last few miles. It got rough out there.
|Thanks, Brian, for the trail support AND this picture.|
And thanks to Alabama Outdoors too for sponsoring my entry into this race! I'll be posting the full recap/review this week. Spoiler alert: I didn't pee my pants as bad as last weekend. Disappointing, I know.
