I arrived at the park around 6 a.m. to help set up aid station #1. Here is the station crew, in our annual port-a-potty prerace pic.
The 50k crazies started at 7:00 a.m. so, after they passed our stop the first of three times, I headed over to the start for the 8:30 not-so-crazy one-loop 10 mile start. (and I was already yawning)
This run is less technical than the goat trails of Paesano's 8 miler a couple of weeks ago, but the last time I ran these trails (in November), I fell, gave myself a black eye, and separated my right shoulder. Like I said, I am not a very talented trail runner. So, I took it easy, and had a nice run.
mean deer did to a guy on Thanksgiving. Here's the finish, where I cruised in on the tail of the 70+ y/o female - eating her dust and looking like a crazy trail running chicken.
