2013 Montvale Park 5 Mile Trail Race

Montvale Park 5 Mile Trail Race
RNUTs 3/6

     The 3rd timed event that Faith and I are hiking as part of the Mountain Junkies RNUTs events was the Montvale Park 5 Mile Trail Race. I had done the 10 mile course for 3 years in a row, but had never tried the shorter 5 mile course before, so this was a 1st for both of us.

       Our goals and strategy remained the same as in our previous efforts this year. Finish uninjured, appreciate nature and being outdoors, keep a steady pace and have a good time. Faith did choose to run ahead a few times for maybe a half mile total and I support her decision to do that if she's comfortable with it, but I'd like to see her more focused on holding a faster hiking pace before she decides if she wants to run or not.
