Trail Mix 2008

Yesterday was the annual Trail Mix Run - 25K up and down the hills at Hyland Park Reserve in Bloomington. I ran with IronGreg, Becca, and her sister Maggie and my friend Diane. It was a perfect day - cool, cloudy, temps in the 40's or 50's. We took 2:33 to finish, so the pace was comfortable and steady throughout.
Lucky for us this year, the ski hill still had snow on it, so the race director re-routed us. All gentle rolling hills. Still hillier than anything I ever run, but much better that doing that ski hill.

Today Bobby has a soccer tournament at 3, 6, and 8 p.m. I'll try to get a pic or two of him as I haven't posted a lot of his pics lately.

Have a great day, everyone!

I was going to show up at Trail Mix. But it was raining, I hadn't registered and I thought to myself, "Why pay $45 to run in this when it's going to dry up and be sunny later and I can run for free?"
Maybe I should have run Trail Mix, cuz it didn't go so great later.

Great run! I was going to show up with Trimama and do it as well but I figured the hills would kill my ITband more than I need it to. :) I ran 12.3 that morning in the rain, the lakes are a much flatter course. Glad you did it!!

Sounds brutal to a flatlander like me. Glad you got the lesser of the two evil routes.

Great job on the run! One of these years, I am hoping to check it out for myself. Except, I don't like hills...one small problem.
