Run4Bibles 10K

This is my first time running this race but I have run the course many many times. The race was held at Cedar Ridge Preserve which is five minutes from home. It was packed, I have never seen this many people at the preserve. This is my favorite place to run for many reasons. The proximity to home is great but so are the views and trails. Plus depending on what kind of race you are training for you can get great hill training or speed training on flat sections. This was my third race at the preserve and it was by far the most difficult race I have run. I cramped up twice in my hamstring and once in my calf. I made it halfway before my hamstring cramped. It was a unseasonably warm and humid day and the race was a rare midday start. The second cramp of the hamstring came on a steep downhill and I was stuck at the top. After surviving that double, on the last steep uphill my calf cramped. I finished in a not so bad 1:28:56 for the cramping circumstances. Once again I avoided a last place age group finish by one place. 28514897_1639006719516327_4788469335810601624_o.jpg29025895_1645132918903707_3517117571591569408_o.jpgI actually look like I am going fast.29103543_1645134785570187_8696516821085323264_n.jpgPrecramp partial smile.FB_IMG_1520126237636.jpgGood times running with friends.

I have another trail run before I hit the hiking trails again.
