Yesterday I participated in a local trail race and ran the 5K. It had been pouring down for days and the trails were muddy and slippery so caution was required. I had to walk down one of the hills to be on the safe side! However, these trails are my backyard and I am used to running on slippery stones and rootes, so my effort was enough to get third place for the women (3/23) and first in age group. Very happy about that as I am by no means a sprinter.
