After Friday night’s ballgame, struggled with the 4 a.m. alarm on Saturday morning.

Up, dressed & on the road for a 25k trail race in Greenland – 30 minutes north of Colorado Springs.

Arrived early, picked up my race bib & shirt – then dozed 45 minutes before the 25k race start.  Running at 7,500 ft elevation, stunning view of the Rockies & all trail – my first trail race, LOVED it!

3 hills – 2 huge hills which slowed my pace to just over a fast trot.  And since today’s course was a loop, I got to see those same 3 hills twice.  Fortunately I was strong this day & continued my trot UP while others walked at miles 10 & 12.

Tough course – altitude & hills – but loved running on trail.  Found it easier than marathon road running.

Only 8 days ‘til Maine!
