Yesterday was my first ever trail race, and it was a doozy. But awesome! It's not called "gruesome" for nothing. About 1.75 miles into it, there is a monster hill. 3/4 mile almost straight up. I had to speed hike most of it. The rest wasn't too bad though.
My goal for this race was mostly to just have fun. Mostly because I wasn't sure how leg would hold up. I got some compression socks the other day, and they made a huge difference. I didn't notice a thing! I also wasn't sure how I'd do after a poor night's sleep, after an 11 hour drive the day before. Turns out I did alright. 19th overall and 1st in age group.
