So, cue trails, cue mud - and cue the IAAP 10 mile trail run on the SOUTHSIDE last Sunday. Spoiler: I did not fall. These were some beautiful trails along the Medina river - doubletrack, non-technical, wild flowers, lovely old trees, not-so-many hills, and, well, MUD. The mud was crazy, but I really had a fun race, running with 3 strangers and stopping to scrape the mud off our shoes on trees and roads.
So, this is what running with 5 pounds of mud on your shoes looks like - pathetic crazy running chicken:
And he's clearly laughing at me.
So, I chased him like a super crazy running chicken (bkaw, bkaw, quiquiriqui?)
Thanks to Ceci/IAAP for the pics and Celia!
