On Tuesday night I ran the first Run Our Trails race of the year. I finished the three mile trail route in 28:23 which was good enough for 24th place.

While the rain let up before the start of the race, it had downpoured all afternoon the first mile of the trail was extremely muddy. The race had more elevation in the final two miles, but it almost came as a relief as it also meant I could get enough traction to actually take a full stride.

Overall it felt like an ok pace for a trail race. I hope to run on the trails one or two more times before my marathon at the end of the month.
