Kutztown Fool's Run 5K

I felt better than last year, even though I was slightly slower. But it was also 30-40 degrees warmer! Intentionally went out more slowly so I wouldn't die on the big hill right out of the start this time. But I felt like I had to take too many walk breaks later. Didn't wear headphones/music which is in the race rules (even though I did last year since many others were) and was surprised that I didn't miss it too much.

After the race there was food, and I talked to some other lady who was there alone and is a Girls on the Run coach. Then I went to the brand new, only open for a week Kutztown Planet Fitness to shower. It was so much nicer than the one I mainly go to, which is old and renovated from being another fitness facility and is a bit of a dump. (But it's 5 minutes from work which means I actually go.) Then I met my friend Amanda at The Works in Wyomissing to do 2 go kart races and play in the arcade a bit (a belated birthday celebration postponed by snow from the beginning of the month).

Legs still feeling tired, but I wanted to run once this week and this was the only appropriate day. (I try not to run the day before riding or the day before a race or orienteering. Except when a race and orienteering fall on the same weekend...)

Also registered for West Point, Rock n Glow 5K and the D&L Half Marathon. As of right now that means I'm completely signed up for everything I am planning on doing that has registration available.

Flying Pig XXIII - Kiser Hollow/Carter Caves State Resort Park - Green A (F35+)

Second day of 2018 Masters Nationals.

Happy to have less climb today, but the terrain (while still cool) was not quite as epic.

Out of start, up to corner of parking lot, down to road, and followed ditch to the bend for 1.

Down hill to trail, crossed trail and ditch, up toward 2, could see pink streamer hanging higher before I could see the bag in the pit.

Over to the line of cliffs and followed the base. Stopped to get a bit closer to first cliff control even though I was sure it wasn't mine (building right above it) but without glasses the 48 looked to similar to my 46 so just checking. Continued on to correct cliff for #3.

Climbed out to the ride, compass and collecting features to 4. Nice downhill to a cool feature at 5. Followed indistinct trail out to ride, passing right by 9, on way to 6. Once I hit ride, went down to the bend and trail to the ruin.

Back out to the ride headed to 7, accidentally cut in a bit early so followed along top of cliffs then found trail/wire fence intersection and ducked in for 7. Back to the trail and used rocky death pit to attack 8. Back to the trail again and took it back out to the ride, then followed the indistinct trail for my second visit to 9.

Kept on indistinct trail to vicinity of 5, then climbed up to trail and aimed for corner of field to find 10.

Across field to large trail and single tree and down the hill to 11. I was still working out what to do for 12 during this leg, when I finally saw the northern route.

So from 11, trails up to the road, through campground, down through the trails to attack 12. And from there just the trails up to 13 and finish.

Finishing everything was good for 2nd place. I never expected to come close to Cristina (and didn't) and I guess Allison didn't come after all so she was my only competition.
