Jumped into a local trail race today despite all the whining lately about my knee issues.

Race Name/Distance: Chobot Challenge 15k (dedicated to the son of a local trail runner who passed way to early in life 4 years ago)

Location: Birdsboro PA (Rustic Park, Birdsboro Waters)

Date: Well that would have been today, 7/9/2017 at 9am

Goals: Run. Run some tempo dammit. This has been a year of slogging.

Results: Not too bad. This was a USATF off road point series so I did not expect an AG placing. Might have been 6th or 7th in the 50-59 AG. It doesn't really matter. Objective achieved with some faster running and breathing and I covered the course, an easy one by Pretzel City Sports standards, in 1:26 and change. Best part was running it in with this 16 y/o girl named Bix who was so full of youth and what lies ahead in life. She refused to drop me over the final mile. It was so funny, and in a way made me smile happy smiles. Oh, did not get passed the last 5k, except for Bix, who finished just a second ahead of me. :happy:

Oops. Forgot to mention there were like 5 fun creek crossings during the run. Ah. Love me some summer.

Sounds like a fun time was had by all. 

Here's a race I'd probably do if I lived closer.  The price is right!

Fun!  Especially racing a young 'un at the end. :grin:

Given your normal exploits this would qualify as a warmup.  Well Done!!!!

DSE XC 5K

Golden Gate Park, SF California

July 9th

Goals,  just wanted to see how I was doing.  Ran slower than my last 5K but that was expected as this was soft surface.  I haven't run a trail race in awhile and it was a blast.  It was a two loop course and I did negative split.
