|The race director gave a little speech and then at 7:04 it started. I stayed near the back but in retrospect I need to make my way to the middle and not be such a wimp and insecure about running by people. The course was really pretty .|
|It is also very hilly and very technical. I liked the up hills they are challenging and I am not afraid to fall but coming down hill was a little different. I was a little scared after seeing a couple guys fall flat on there backs so I was careful.|
|I have no idea who this guy is but I wanted to show you why this was named Stair way to heaven. We run up to the of this mountain . There are stairs that kick your ass but at the top is a girl smiling dressed as an Angel.|
|I am hot in this picture and I chose a long sleeve shirt. Do you also love the mascara below my eyes from the sweat. I know !! I feel like yelling G…|
Short sleeves honey and take all the mascara of before you run.
|I felt strong most of the race I just need to not hold back. I think on the trails I am afraid I will run out of energy so I make sure I have this reserve and at the end I had all this run in me I did not use.|
