Life is short... running makes it seem longer. Baron Hansen

Last week, I accomplished my first trail race in Sausalito, Ca. - 20k Pirates Cove Trail Run. Every week, the challenge continues and even though its tough, I have learned to enjoy it even more.

Our race started out on a steep hill. I don't think many of us thought it was going to end. It seemed as though we were just walking/hiking for the first 2 miles.

But once we got to the top, we had an amazing view.

even seeing the Golden Gate Bridge to the side of us. :)

The course had just the right amount of difficulty. I think I completed the course in just under 2:39 minutes. Considering we were walking/hiking up for the first couple of miles, I think I did pretty good. My pace in the beginning was probably around 15m./mile, and once we climbed and running rolling hills, it was more like 10-11m./mile.

Still Running,

Bethany Perry
