The Race
I can't recall having ever taken a full week off all exercising since I started doing endurance sports, but preparing for the Blue Ridge Half was exhausting, so I thought "Why not?". I had no idea how my body would react to being pushed competitively after 6 full days of rest, so I was pleasantly surprised to come home from the Trail Nut 10k with the 2nd place Age Group medal.

I'm going to keep the summary short and sweet. As the race started, I quickly got shuffled into the 6th spot. Over the course of the race I got passed 4 times and I finished 10th overall. It was a beautiful morning. I saw and spoke with many familiar, smiling, happy faces and enjoyed being part of the great trail running community.
