Welcome to the family....um...no name decided upon yet.....but she is here!Meeting big sis.....yes Kubba is still hissing when she walks up to her but hoping it settles down.
Yes that has kind of taken up our evening! She is cute and we have thrown a lot of names around but just can't find the perfect one yet. Idea's any one??
Now to the race recap: 5miler (my gps and dud's gps came out at 5.31miles) 43:35
It was a tough course and it really challenged me! Which I loved a lot lot lot! We started off in the woods of a local Game Lands. We have fished there a few times so I knew a least the one pond area as we ran around it at the start. Every turn and path was well mark with nice bright orange tape and wooden signs with arrows! I started off with a 7:35 first mile and felt great. I could see one women ahead of me. I knew that another women who always beats me was somewhere behind me. I hit mile two but my GPS blinked out so I don't have a time for it....(yes I am looking for a new garmin). Around 2.5 we were in mainly woods and shade and it was flat. The other woman caught up to me and we giggled as she passed because I turned and felt her coming so I told her just get it over with and pass! I tried to stay as close as possible with her but didn't want to burn out pushing to stay with her. I could still see her and the other women the whole time. They were passing each other a million times. Good thing because at mile 4 the hills came! Oh who ever thought to put a quarter mile long hill in the last .5mile of a 5mile trail run was nuts! But I got up it and got to the straight stretch before the finish. An older gentlemen caught up to me and yelled at me to kick it in so I did! I was so happy to have him yell at me. When I came through the finish they told me I was the 3rd female to finish! I was shocked because I thought they took off and were way ahead of me!! But come to find out it was the two women I could see the whole time. They finished less then 40secs ahead of me.
I love trail runs and now that I know the course I think I can tackle it better next year! I am happy with my time for a trail run. Now the debate is....LR tomorrow or Monday? Play with the newbie kitten or LR?? LOL!!
Happy weekend everybody!
