I ran the Backyard Burn 10 Miler at Fountainhead Regional Park on Sunday.
I run the trails here often, and it's great fun having the opportunity to run some different (temporary) trails created just for the Backyard Burn.
This is a hilly one, and I really like the course. EX2 Adventures puts on outstanding races.
It was a beautiful, chilly morning, perfect trail racing weather. Any day I get to race in my tattoo arm warmers, I'm happy.

|Around mile 8. Yes, I walked this hill.|
I'm not sure that was a fair test, seeing that my training has been almost all easy running since my fall marathon. I'm definitely not on my racing game.
|Half a mile to go, time to kick!|
|Post-race bliss. I was quite happy with my final sprint.|
