This morning we ran the Paine to Pain Trail Half Marathon course preview. Great weather - and a bunch of runners who will be lining up for the real deal in just a couple of weeks! A fantastic, and no pressure, way to scope out the trail.
I've done the preview and race many times over the years. But I must admit that I run the second half of the course many, many times as part of my general runs. That's a huge benefit for living in the neighborhood :D
Despite that, still managed to go OFF COURSE in Saxon Woods - haha! A trail run just wouldn't be complete without some bonus miles :O
Done, after 14.2 miles :D
