Thanks for the comment on my blog. I think because I live in a rural area and have done lots of training by myself with no support nearby in the form of stores or parks, I didn't really find the trail racing to be that much different other than the terrain. There are no hills where I live, so that was a new challenge. However I have slipped on pine needles, and even almost wiped out when I stepped on a bone of a small animal and it rolled under my foot during my training runs in my neighborhood. The Corbett race has me a little nervous only from the standpoint that there is the possibility of running into wild hogs/boar, and maybe alligator and snakes. That race is IN my neighborhood and I have hiked there before, so I know the dangers. I will definitely report on that race. I'm off to check out the Trail Running group. Thanks!
