Race Report - Ashland Trail Race 5K

Way, way back in June, I ran the Ashland Trail Race 5K at Ashland State Park. It was a beautiful day and a super fun experience. 

When I signed up for this race, I didn't know what to expect or what it would be like to actually run on trails. To me, trails were for hiking. And that alone can be challenging! Fortunately, my attempt at "running" on the trails was a success. Here's why: 

1. I did not trip. 
2. I did not get lost. 
3. I finished.

What's fun about running on trails is that you feel like you're on a mission. Like you're being chased. And the last thing you want to do is be tricked by the evil roots and rocks trying to take you down. You see, that's the difference between MarathonMike and I. When he runs on trails in the woods, it feels, and I quote, "Like you're running through the woods." Probably explains why he's much faster than weirdos like me... 

But, hey, I had fun! And I liked a new off-road running experience. It's good to mix it up every once in awhile.
