it was a soggy morning to run just under 2.5 miles on the trails of the blue mountain reservation in peekskill for the taconic road runners couples relay. if it wasn't for the pancakes and bacon waiting for the finishers in the lodge - and a nice little fire burning in the fireplace - i don't think i could have run it :O
luckily, the rain stopped just after the race got underway. by the time the men's turn came, it was just wet and muddy out on the trail. for the second time in two days i was way overdressed for a race. emmy handed off second place when she tagged me for my leg, but i was overtaken halfway thru and we finished in third place.
given the conditions, i was more than happy with that... and the post-race breakfast that followed :D
i'm not sure results will be posted, but if so... i'll add a link.
here are the rest of my photos on facebook.
