Hey all! If you missed my race recap of the Squirrely Tail Twail Wun half marathon, check it out here. Also, I urge you to check out Ana's recap. She got a lot more pictures than I did, including the infamous stream crossing with yellow rope but no lifeguard.
Here are some final things I want to share about the race...
1. The results are in! I was the 5th woman overall and I was first in my age group! (30-39). I am quite pleased.
2. Apparently, you can get poison ivy in the winter. I have several dots of poison ivy on my left leg! I think it was from climbing over several logs. From what I read online, the plants die but the oil can stick around.
3. My recovery went well. I felt real jacked up for several hours after the race but the next day I felt normal. Two days after the race, I went for a run. My legs were tired, but other than that, no aches or pains. That's a success!
4. I'm not sick of trail running yet because I signed up for the Naked Bavarian 20 miler at Blue Marsh Lake and I will be running that on Saturday! Hopefully the trail conditions are better than those at Pinchot, or else I will regret this decision!
Oh, 5:41am update: My shoulder is feeling A LOT better! I can raise it over my head and stuff, only hurts to do things like reach around my back. Every day it's starting to feel better. I still want to buy a special pillow.
