10.55k in 1:15:21 I missed my goal time by 21 seconds, but improved my time from last year. It was a hilly trail run and hills and I do not get along. There was one hill where I seemed like I just shut down and did not have it in me to run... Read more

My Garmin time was 33:06. Not too bad considering it was a hilly course. Have I ever mentioned that I do not like running uphill and usually walk them? I was running with my granddaughter and since it was an out and back course, I let her go ahe... Read more
