I am tickled pink to have completed the Beaver Flat Fifty Try a Trail 5k Race at Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park. It was AMAZING!!!! Definitely started out too fast with 150 runners pushing through a narrow trail to hit the first hill. Was light headed at the top but with the back log of runners was able to run slowly and catch my breath. Finished strong with gas still in the tank. Ran with a friend who started this journey with me - we vowed we'd start and finish together and we did great supporting each other throughout the race. Can't wait for next year. Will it be the Trail Blitz 10k or Dam hard 20k. My head says 10k, my heart says 20k. We'll see which one wins out when Registration opens in January 😆. This lady is hooked. Love trail running - it is A LOT harder but oh so pretty and worth it. No time to worry about breathing and pace, too focused on watching the terrain and staying up right. Whoohoo!!!!
