I am all set for my race tomorrow! It is my first official TRAIL RACE and I am SO excited. It's the Chester Woods 10 mile Trail run. I packed my clothes and some snacks for the race--I am bringing trusty dried papaya spears, golden raisins, Chia, a pack of Gu, hydration belt and my trusty heart covered race hat incase of rain. I also have pants for after and 2 different tops incase!
I am going to do an official, official review of my Pearl Izumi's after the race, but home they don't get covered in...you guessed it: MUD. There is a 40 % chance of rain, but I am hoping for 60% AWESOME for the run.
Ok, back to business. My 10 mile PR is 1:35, and I know I am close if not under that based on the last half marathon I ran. Since running trails and possibly in the rain will take more effort and time than a road race, I am shooting for:
1:49 officially, 1:45 unofficially.
In all honesty, I am just excited to run and a time goal is just a minor goal for tomorrow. I want to finish in one piece and have fun! Recap will come early next week.
