This weekend Cheri and I went to Arkansas for a trail run. We stayed at a super cute hotel built at an old mill complete with evening snacks and free cookies! We got there in time to do a little shopping-I picked up a few presents for the pets-and still had time to relax a bit before bed.
The race morning was cool and cloudy but not crazy cold. The first half of the race was pretty rough. It had a long uphill on rough and rocky terrain followed by a long downhill on the same terrain. The second half was much nicer, a more "runnable" style of trail. It was only supposed to be 5 miles but somewhere in the fine print it actually said 5-6 miles. They may as well have called it 6 because it was far closer to 6 than 5! But it helped me get a bit closer to my 1000 mile goal. Only 75 more!
Then we headed home and Jerry and I spend the evening catching up on our TV and then sleeping in this cool, dreary morning. Welcome to winter.
