Tomorrow's Trails

Tomorrow I run my first trail race.  I am beyond excited, but also beyond nervous.  Its a half-marathon, and apparently a hilly one at that.  When I asked a seasoned trail runner who has run this race before, "Is this race difficult?"  Her answer, "Yes."  And that was that.


Here's the elevation chart (which I totally forgot to look at until now):

This will be my hilliest race to date.  And considering I fall every. single. time. I run on trails, I'm expecting to spend a good amount of time with my face in the dirt.  My goal is to just finish this race in one piece.



  1. What if you finish the race in multiple pieces and just spent the next day putting yourself back together again? Like humpty dumpty? Only successfully?
