Today I ran 5 Peaks Rattlesnake Point sport distance (each race has a sport and endurance distance).. After getting my feet wet (more like muddy) at my first trail race in Terra Cotta I thought I'd push the limits a bit on this one to see what I could do. Considering it's called the most technical of the Ontario courses, I'm really pleased with my finish time and race overall. I even passed a lot of people!
Congrats to Leanne for her first official race back, to Scott for his first trail race ever, to Michelle and Gemma for their podium finishes, and to Lisa for keeping Leanne from running the whole thing!
If you haven't tried a trail race, do it. It's a TOTALLY different world than road racing. I didn't quite believe it till I tried it. And now I am more hooked than ever.
PS There are sour gummy worms, chips and cookies at the finish!
