Last weekend was the final race of the Dances With Dirt Trail series. This race was different in that it started the slowest from the series starting first, with the faster runners starting later in hopes that we would all finish close to the same time. As it turned out, the elite runners caught up with everyone at about the 4 mile mark in the 5 mile race and passed us all like a herd of spooked deer. And while it was impressive to watch these fast CC runners explode through the trails, I think it left all the slower runners little bit stunned by their approach.
Anyway, I was able to rally at the end for a happy 44:15 finish and a great after-race brunch catered by Heather Poast. It was a great time!
