This weekend, I am running the 5K at the Ashland Trail Race. I'm excited and nervous. I've been joking about trying to win "Most Polite Runner" if there was such a thing. "No, please, go ahead. After you!" I don't want to trip or fall or worse, cause someone else to take a spill. How embarrassing would that be? I've been practicing short distances on the trails nearby and today I ran 3 miles completely on trails at Caryl Park and Noanet Woodlands. Another perk from the trails? Beautiful views you can't see from the road!
MarathonMike asked me if I will keep running on trails after the race this weekend. Definitely if it gives me an excuse to buy a new pair of shoes like these ones!
