Well she was wrong about the location and it ended up being a trail race in the woods that was super difficult.
It wasn't the worst thing I've ever ran, but it was hard. An experience I won't forget.
Would I do it again? Maybe, but only after some trail run training for it'scompletely different from road racing.
It had 1383 feet of climbing and was 6.3 miles long.
My time was long to me- 1:41:01, but given how hard it was and that it was my first 10K trail race, it was fine. I ended up being 2nd out of 4 in my age group so that's pretty good.
I ran with Amy for just over 5 miles then split off and ran ahead, she wanted to walk at that point and I wanted out of the woods.
