My run on Sunday was at White Ranch Open Space on some nice prairie and woodland trails. Such as:
I did wear the official shirt, which I like, but I didn't like any of the photos so I'll spare you. You can see it here instead. I like the winged logo of the Rock CF Foundation.
On race day I had a slight disadvantage because I had spoiled my taper a bit the prior day, but I wasn't going to bow out just because of that.
But it did make ascents such as this one a bit of an oxygen-free zone:
My legs didn't have much in them, and at times my entire body felt like it was screaming for air. Odd how that worked out.
Distance was 10.3 miles, moving time 2:03, elevation gain/loss was 1,645 feet.
I won't lie, I did some walking uphill, since 37 miles for the weekend is not my typical number.
But it was a beautiful outing at one of my favorite parks, I practically had the place to myself, and it was for a good cause. So the virtual race was a clear win-win.
