Training for a Trail Race
I've gotten in a few short runs this week since running the Houston marathon last Sunday. Today I did a little bit of trail running - only half a mile during my 8 mile run.
Even though my pace slows down on the trail, the time passes quickly because I'm busy looking out for roots, turns and dips in the trail. The birds were singing and there was a light rain to cool me off on this humid morning.
I'm training for the Orphan Hope Half Marathon Trail Run which takes place in three weeks. It will be my first half marathon on trails and I can't wait!
