I did yet another trail race this past weekend. This one was in the DINO series, so it was a 15K. It took place in Brown County State Park, which, like many other trail choices in the area, is close to my house. We got a big group together of people in my running club and caravaned over there, where we had a great time cheering for each other and disrupting the awards. It is seriously so much more fun to do a race when lots of people with the same shirt on are doing it. It reminds me of cross country.
The trail itself was beautiful. I seriously need to get myself a park pass and get the heck out there more often. I ran a little under 1:21, which I was very pleased with. Word is that this route is closer to 10 miles than 15K. Sounds good to me! That netted me third in my age group in a very competitive field.
The great thing about having a team around is sharing in their triumphs. Tons of people got age group awards and there was lots of accompanying celebration. And our slow and steady crew finished under a power arch.
Good job on the trail race, Mir. DINO does a nice job.
I ran a trail marathon last Saturday in the Hoosier National Forest near Corydon. Go to my blog at "Run with Perseverance" to see pix and read the report. Might help your prep.
Tecumseh Trail is a tough race, especially if muddy. It is one of my two lifetime DNFs for marathons!!
