This was the first run that I did with an installed sign! Photo from April 14:

If you’re not used to running long exclusively on roads, this course is going to be hard on the feet. I had consistently been doing 8-9 mile long runs for about a month but many of them incorporated gravel or other non-road sections, and none of them were out and back like this course. While it was not the longest Challenge run for me by time, mentally it was definitely the toughest, especially as it rained several times during my effort. Glad that I did it but don’t think I would head over here again.

Campbell Meadows is very pretty though and I did follow the advice to soak my feet in the water…a nice wake up as it was VERY cold!

The run gods blessed me with a cloudy but Dry Morning for my long run :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
The wind was a wonderful asset, (for once :sweat_smile:)
Saw so many song birds :bird::feather: very little traffic
I really enjoyed this run, I am grateful it was easier than the Skunk cabbage course :sweat_smile:


Love the statues here :racehorse:

A huge thank you to Melissa Plank and Evan Lodge for some motivation. This morning was wet and I was debating not running. I looked at the activity log (as one does) and saw they had logged a run. Well, if they can get up and run, I can too.

It was rainy, wet, and long. Seeing the turnaround was the highlight of the run, and it was a slog from start to finish. I am sure the super athletes here eat this one for breakfast, but for me it was a hard, slow run.

3rd run, as part of my longest long run of my training block. Rained most of the run :roll_eyes::umbrella: but got it done, now I go into taper, and I’m 100% sure I’ll get a case of the taper crazies :crazy_face::woozy_face::face_with_peeking_eye:

Taper tantrums are real! Good luck and have a great race in a few weeks!
