Today we learned that trail running is a battle against gravity. On the uphills it wants to keep you down, on the downhills it wants to break your ankles and shatter your face.
On this occasion, however, our band of merry runners emerged victorious. The gummy bears also helped. That there photo below is Alison at the very end, at a point when I probably should not have been attempting to take a picture.
So, yes. Trail racing. It’s fun. I’ll do it again.
