3 Bests – What aspects of the race did you like the most?
The Event – NW Trail Runs is a fantastic outfit!
The Trails – 97% runnable trails for me, so that was fun. The winding trails keep you alert and help make the time go by fast.
The Company – NW Trail Runs always attract a great group which makes for some very enjoyable mornings out there.
Not so much – Aspects of the race that didn’t do it for you
There weren’t any oreos at the aid stations 😉
Highlights of your race – What did you do well and enjoy about your race in particular?
I did a good job of staying in control and not letting the “ease” of the course be my downfall. I have a tendency to go out too fast when trails are runnable, which zaps me at the end of races.
Aesthetics – Is it a pretty course?
Extremely beautiful forest the entire way. SO MUCH GREEN.
