I need to get my head straight before these trail runs. I need to write 100 times on a sheet of paper "you will not run your normal half-marathon pace". Maybe actually running on the trails beforehand would help. I'm just always thinking some creeper is going to kidnap me and then my four children will be forced to a life of peanut butter and jelly at the hands of my non cooking husband.
This was a fun race though. We got cuckoo bird whistles instead of the usual medals. I even won a German Cuckoo Weather House. Lots of DM peeps were there and one aid station had beer and an accordion player and Bavarian dressed volunteers. Good times.
I took a nice spill on mile 5ish. It was like I was sliding for home plate in slow-mo. Trail running Is good. Nothing like getting your ass handed to you every now and then.
