Since tearing my right adductor last spring...throwing javelin...it has been a long and frustrating recovery. Finding joy in trail running and working towards an FKT attempt on this trail has keep me motivated.
The light rain from the day before ended up making it easier to see rocks that had been hiding under dry leaves on previous runs. Despite multiple recon runs I still ran slower than I wanted through the more technical sections. I should have pushed harder on the more runnable sections but all in all I am happy with my effort. This trail really has it all which makes it so fun.
