Combining my first half marathon with my first trail run may not have been my smartest move. I was smart enough, however, to recruit Susan and Kali. Without them I may not have made it home. Thank you, ladies, for your company!
Four(4) days after the race I quit wincing with every step. My quads have never been so sore for so long in my life! Two days after the race I quit guzzling fluids. I was finally rehydrated. One day after the race a fever blister popped out on my lip, but thanks to my friend, Dr. T, I had medicine to halt it. Seven days after the race I am looking for a training plan for my next challenge.
I know, you think I'm nuts. Maybe I am, but I have lots of friends who are nutty, too!
Enjoy the pics!
