Bigfoot 10 mile trail race
I have been wanting to do a trail race for a while now. This one was good timing to keep us motivated through the fall and also close to home. We drove over in the a.m. and just barely had time for registration and the bathroom before the start. Based on our goal pace of < 12 min/mile we tried to start about 50 people back. Should've started much closer to the front. The course was a loop with a short out/back near the S/F. Weather was 38F and rainy. It had been raining for a couple of days and the trail was a muddy mess. So much fun :) I was passing people for most of the race. Slow lines of 10 mi racers for the first couple of miles and then 20 mi / 50 k racers for the rest (they started before we did). I felt great throughout. Probably could've pushed harder, but I had no idea on pacing and didn't want to run out of steam at the end. Very happy with my time, especially given the condition of the trails. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
