Trail Run race 36:42 4.7 mi (7:49 / mi) shoes: NB 874
Fall Back 5 Trail Race at Saratoga Spa State Park. A pretty gentle trail race with lots of variety: some grass, some paved, some gravel, some dirt, some single track, some short but steep hills (up and down), very little mud, a few roots, a log or two and no real rocks. Billed as five miles, but both Janet and my Forerunners measured about 4.7 mi.
Ran a fairly well paced race, which is not typical for me. Started slowly with the intent of enjoying the run rather than worrying about racing and it worked. Ended up 29/105 overall and 2nd in M55-59 (6 in M50 - 59). And really enjoyed the race. Temperatures were a bit cool (upper 30's at the start) but it was mostly sunny.
Afterwards had a nice bowl of soup for lunch in downtown Saratoga Springs.
