The race was at Bluff Creek Ranch just outside of Warda. So we decided to camp Friday and Saturday nights, this was also Roo's first camping trip. He did great and had a lot of fun.
He didn't get to race with me because the course was mostly on single track trail and I didn't want him to be in the way.
Trail running in general has a very chill, fun vibe and that was certainly true of this race. I chose the 10K distance and it started at 7:15am, after the 50 miler, the 50K, and the 25K. It was a great course and a beautiful (if a bit cold) day for running. Everyone on the course was really nice and encouraging, the course was pretty, and not too rough. When I finished, I told Jeff I wish I had signed up for the 25K instead of the 10K.
We hung out all day and lots of people petted Roo and commented on how beautiful and well behaved he was.
I was hanging out at the finish line to watch the final 50 mile finishers come in and Chris (the owner of Tejas Trails) pretty much talked me into running the 25K at Bandera in January! It's one of the toughest trails in the country! Crazy!
