Race Against Racism
9 AM

road run race 34:14 [5] 5.0 km (6:51 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel-Excite 3

Lancaster Race Against Racism

I was not sure how I would feel physically for this, but I actually felt great for most of the race. I walked on the uphills, of which there are one or two small ones and then a big one near the end. Slower than last year, but I was mostly just glad that nothing hurt and I was having fun. And not a twinge to be felt from the crappy leg.

1037/2395 overall
470/1386 F
51/147 F 35-39

Here I can be seen finishing:
11 AM

manual labor 1:00:00 [1]

Then up to camp for the work day. Really about 4-5 hours of raking heavy, wet leaves, cleaning and organizing a unit, and assembling bunk beds.

The Lancaster Junction rail trail from end to end and back.
My lower back was very tight especially in the first 2 miles. Running a 5K on Saturday should be interesting. Will be trying to get everything stretched out by then and may need a decent walk to warm up. (I was signed up before sciatica starting making threats again.)

West Point Rockhouse Mountain - Green (F35+)

Screwed up slightly right off the bat, looking for 1 too early. Came out of the green slightly left of 2, but was able to match everything up easily and pop through the little saddle to it. Pretty much straight line to 3 and 4. But then... holy long leg to 5!

Skirted along past the green/stone wall area, and passed right back through the start line, then down that hill through the white-ish corridor to the big trail. Up the trail to the smaller trail on the left, then at the stream junction cut up through the green. Now, it felt like I was in there for a very long time and I started getting a bit panicky. (I hate being in low visibility for long periods, and for some reason I was also thinking about rattlesnakes again, and I hadn't seen any people in a while, and felt like I was way out there alone....) But then I popped right out near the corner of the white and the swamp, where I wanted to be, and reorganized my thoughts and headed to the control. I still got a little more into the green than I wanted, but I could see the bag through it. Stopped nearby here to tie my shoes for the third or so time. The next time they came untied, I just left them that way until I got out of the blueberries.

Stayed high/south of the green to 6, catching a glimpse of 8 on the way, using the rocky curved area to attack. Easy pop down to 7, with the big cliffs already visible, and over to 8 where the hilltops easily stood out.

Went south to the trail and along it through the green. At the bend in the white with the stone walls, went down to the stream and climbed up and to the right side of the dark green, into the field, and through the underpass.

The rest of it was simple, follow trails home.

hiking 15:00 [1] 1.4 km (10:43 / km)
