Today RB and I ran a race. It was supposed to be fun. It was not. It was supposed to be 22.5K. It was not. Our first trail run ended up being uphill both ways, and was 26.24K - for those of you metrically challenged that's 16.4 miles. It sucked.
It was fun for about the first 5 miles - after that it got pretty miserable. Between the two of us we tripped at least 2 dozen times, and I fell. My ankle hurts and the back of my right knee makes it nearly impossible for me to walk up and down stairs and down hill is pretty killer. Ouch. Needless to say, I won't be running that race again. Blech.
