Had a great time out in Elgin, IL for a trail race of 34 miles. What a strange distance, but it was a nice loop course just under 7 miles per lap. Nice easy pace and still had some in the tank. It was really muddy and we had to go through some places where standing water was about a foot deep, but that sure made it interesting. Met a lot of cool people and enjoyed a day without rain, what a blessing that was!
Here are a few pictures of the course, and here for some of me.
Had a nice week of running. Did a 5K in 18:16 then two days later hit a nice pace marathon in 3:34:00. My pace was off in the marathon, but I didn't look at my watch once and they didn't have mile markers posted so I kept my mind off the run and just had a great time. Here is the medal (twist your head) and my 5K times; pretty proud to run that fast in my fivefingers! You will see my name under #11; Jeff Bott
