      Any downed trees to clamber over or crawl under? And you don't look muddy enough in your finishing picture.  No blood and scraped knees either.

      2014 Goals: Run first trail ultra, first 100K, and see what I can do in a 24-Hour race

        Congrats T&C!  I used to play disc golf at Tyler (prior to my trail running life), it must be a nice place to run.  Very cool to get the PR and the AG award for a race with sentimental value.  Imagine how well you would've done if you were in 50k shape

          Nahh these trails are pretty tame....the "worst" of it was the four 6-8 inch stream crossings. 

           


          Thanks, Jamezilla! That thought crossed my mind several times during the race Wink

                You should have been there when I ran it years ago. We had at least two trees to clamber over twice each, as well as some right-angled turns at the bottoms of steep hills. If you didn't use a tree to bounce off of and help you make the turn, you'd fly off the trail into the brush.

                  GReat job and congratulations on 2nd in your AG!  That's a really fast time for a trail race especially with 4 water crossings.  Really pretty pictures, and you and your friend look so happy!  I agree, it is super fun to race with friends.
