10 Race Recaps & I'm Racing, too!
I'm registered for the Texas Endurance 50K Trail Race, held on November 22. It's at the same park where I ran the Hog's Hunt 50K Trail Race. This time I'd like to only run 31 or so miles without those added 8 miles I tacked on!
If the fall weather isn't enough to motivate you to run, read these race recaps for racing motivation. Signing up for a race gives you a goal to look forward to. Works for me!
