I signed up for this race 2 days ago. I had wanted to sign up for it when registration went live, but totally forgot about it. This race fills up pretty quick, only 600 runners max, and it did sell out. For whatever reasons, they had to move the date of the race, so slots opened. I basically thought this would be a good training run for the Quivering Quads coming up.
I bought Yaktrax because of the snow. I have never ran in these before, but what a blessing they were! A girl in front of me had on some old trainers and she was slipping and sliding all over the place. I felt very grounded most of the run. Highly recommend!

I really struggled to finish, but I did.

I'm really nervous about the trail half marathon in a month. Ugggg. I want to drop out, but will give it some time. I am doing a YMCA sprint triathlon in a week and I'm really looking forward to that!!! I've been swimming laps and that's been going really well. I really enjoy being back in the pool.
