Breckenridge hosts a series of six trail races throughout the summer. I saw when I first arrived that there was a race tonight, and thought what the heck, I'll give it a try.
Not surprisingly, running at 10,000 feet mostly uphill on single track mountain trails is H A R D!!! My legs didn't even hurt; it was my lungs and back of my throat. They were B U R N I N G!!!
I did the short track at 3.4 miles. These other runners were serious! There were probably only a hundred runners total, and I'm pretty sure I came in dead last. Also pretty sure a hundred year old man passed me.
But hey, I did it at least!
Thank you to the girl in the pink running tank who became my running partner for the second half of the race!
