One of these trail races is in Akron, while the majority of the rest are within an hour's drive. I've been wanting to try trail and cross-country races, and this series could be just the ticket.
In sickly news, I'm feeling much better after taking some sinus medicine. Thanks for all your kind support.
Wherein I actually answer some questions in an informative manner.
On my 2010 Racing Prospectus:
- MissZippy asks: "Where is the buckeye 1/2?"
- Ms. V says: "I'm thinking of doing Akron. Seriously."
- Sun Runner asks: "No Cleveland Half? I'm doing it this year with my dad and I was kinda hoping I'd run into you there."
Answer to No. 2: Be ready for some hills. Seriously.
Answer to No. 3: Yeah, sorry, my training is nowhere near where I would be able to race well. Not worth the price as a fun run. As we say in Cleveland, maybe next year.
On my recent beer price rape at the Lockview, 21 Days Jess asks: "That is dang pricey. Is it infused with diamond dust?"
Answer: No, the Lockview is just using me to fund its owner's coke habit.
On my recent trail runs and the hippie shoes, Xenia asks: "Is it not good to use the hippie shoes on sidewalks or are you just trying to avoid even more people giving you the side eye?"
Answer: As I found out, running on pavement in the hippie shoes is a little less pleasurable than trails. Doable, but less fun. And, yes, a few fewer askance glances.
Happy Hour is nearly upon us, teammates. Have a finely brewed weekend. Run well and drink well. Cheers!
