|Jerry and I, getting ready to run!|
My husband Jerry loves trail races, I love road races, but I am always up for a Run Wild Adventure Event. They are very challenging and loads of fun.
It was the most beautiful weather I have ever seen at this race. High 40's with a light mist. I call this perfect race weather! We started just after 9:00 am at Howard Creek Horse Camp. Entry fee was $25.00 or $40, day of race. I always pre-register for the better price. It often will fill up before race day too. It would be a shame to miss out!
We started up the mountain and soon the familiar "burn" of trying to run up Buck Mountain hit! It was extra muddy, so trying to keep from slipping and falling was a challenge. I had to walk some of it! But as I looked around, everyone around me was taking walk breaks as well! It was steep!!!
The course is 6.5 miles long, with lots of up hill. We where nearly at 4 miles before we got to really start cruising down. There was a "bonus" sneaker hill just before the end too! Not bad compared to the last hill we had just gone up. This course was MUDDY, and absolutely beautiful. It was fun, I did slip several times, but I never fell down!
|I really wanted to win a boot medal|
Jerry had already come in when I got to the finish line. I was feeling really good, but really hungry! We went to the food table and got some chili and Great Harvest Bread. I didn't care for the chili this year, but the bread was perfect!
