Moscow Mountain Madness 2010 (a mini race report)

Posted Sep 12 2010 4:41pm
I initially planned to skip this race, but my legs have been feeling better the last couple days, so I decided to get in one more good run before I leave for NYC/Costa Rica/SF.

Moscow Mountain Madness is a 12-mile trail run on my favorite local trails.  I ran this last year and finished in the top-10.  Even with heavy legs this year, I figured I could beat last year's time simply because I'm in much better shape than I was last year.  My legs weren't in racing mode, but my plan was to push them to the limit.

The crowd thinned out within about a mile and by two miles Sadie and I were by ourselves, just like a regular weekend run for us.  Except this time it cost me $15 more than usual.

My legs ended up feeling very good for the second-half downhill, so I let loose and blasted down.  Sadie was feeling strong too, and we crossed the finish line in 1:22:00 and another top-10 finish.

Lining up for the start

Almost feels like summer again

I love these trails

Sadie loves them too

I like running

I'll probably be offline for a couple weeks, but you'll hear from me soon.  :)

Keep running!
