This past Mother's Day, my youngest daughter and I ran our first trail race and our first race over 5k.
What a great way I spend Mother's Day, up early and exercising :) Not everyone's idea of the ideal way to spend the holiday, but I think it is!
I love to run on the trails around my home, and the rougher, the better!! So, I was psyched for this race. It was at a local conservation area and by a river and a lake, and the scenery was beautiful.
Unfortunately, a lot of the "trail" was grass and gravel road running which wasn't what I was hoping. I actually hate running on grass, and especially when the grass is wet. Ugh. There was only a small section that was what I consider a trail.
All in all, it was a good race, just not what I was hoping. The distance wasn't a problem, and I am hoping that eventually I can do a 10k.
I don't think I will do another trail race here again, but then you never know, I might change my mind again. :)
