Suffering from a bit of writer’s block I decided to invite a guest writer to tell of their last race. Over to you then Barkley…”Good Boy”.
|Me in "RUT" Colors!|
My best friend wished me well but I couldn’t get him to move from his “Comfy Spot”.
|Good to see. We had some out of state runners. I think these fine fellas were from Tennessee or Appalachia?|
|And some international runners from Germany who as expected were very disciplined.|
|The Race Director gave a compelling talk about the race much to the amazement of some runners|
And we’re off! Focus was important. Some of the younger runners were clearly too distracted.
|Attack squirrels – Some were not willing to share the trail|
|We particularly had to stay clear of the Jedi Sqirrels|
|Contemplating my 1st Water Crossing|
|Water Crossing - Going for it!|
|Taking a Breather|
|The occasional hurdle to jump|
|Setting a Good Pace|
|An early covered walk way crossing|
|Establishing my bearings - Which Way?|
|The gravity defying runners were just plain weird|
|Competition amongst the Top-Dogs was fierce|
|Breaking through the Trail - Race Done!|
|Though only a 5K some finishers were pretty messed up by the finish|
