1. Lots of roots, narrow trails, and densely wooded. We ran during the daytime and I easily lost sight of the folks running a few yards ahead of me.
2. I rolled both ankles while running. Nothing serious, I kept running, but I’ll definitely need to be careful.
3. We got lost within the first .2 mi of our run and ran straight into a family’s campsite. Oh, and not just any campsite, a renaissance festival campsite. As soon as we came upon them I thought, “Why is that young adolescent male wearing a cloak while playing horseshoes…and why is his father wearing a cloak as well?” I only saw two tents, but one of them was blue with Merlin the Magician stars all over it. Yeah, they were the real deal.
I have to say running this trail at night is going to be a little scary. When I actually think about the creepy crawlies in the woods—eek! Ok, so let’s not think about. A few more weeks until the race!
