Fleet Feet AZ Trail Race

Dallas and I decided to skip the TTR run today and run the Fleet Feet AZ Trail Race. I have done it twice and he had never run it, so I signed us up! This is my first 'running' race in some time.

This race is only 8 miles, but allows me to taper and have a little burst of speed before Pemberton 50k next week.

The photographers on the course got some good pictures of me and some not so great.

Happy - beginning of the race

Climbing a hill on the way back

I'm pretty tired at this point!

I won't be posting the worst one. :)

I placed 3rd in my age group!

Time - 1:20:35

I finished 95th out of 234 finishers. This race brings out the fast people. I haven't been speed training at all, so I felt good about the time. I thought I'd never run again last Summer, so it is all good. :)

Dallas finished 4th in his age group, missing 3rd place by 20 seconds. There are a lot of fast guys in his age group.

Got to see some friends at the race. Shari - haven't seen in forever, which was awesome. Kathy - I'll be riding up with her next week to Fountain Hills for Pemberton 50k.
