My new kicks for the Shut in race this year. I love this race and we haven't done it in a few years so when David signed us up I was surprised! I was waitlisted but was fortunate enough to snag a spot with a few weeks to spare. I had no expectations for this race. I had had a big racing season already and needed to start my recovery and rest block but this is my favorite trail run so my coach gave me the OK! It was a great run, warm and mostly sunny. I enjoyed the romp in the woods and crossed the finish line in 3 hours, a PR for me on this course.
A nice award for the finish!
David crossing the finish line! YES!! He made it. He has struggled with his running this year but I know he was really proud to finish this very difficult race.
