Quick Recap of today's Escarpment Trail Run - 5:08:03! That was a solid 16 minutes faster than my last Escarpment 5:24:19 (2016) - and, in more amazing news, a PR for me! It shaved off 15+ minutes from my old 5:23:30 (2006) personal best over the course! At my age, any PR is a reason to celebrate - ha! But this one is especially sweet ;D
Maybe it was the perfect weather? Maybe it was going into the race with zero expectations (or nearly so, I was hoping to finish in 5:30 - or at a minimum, re-qualify for next year). Whatever the reason(s) - I'll take it :D
Here is my race report.
