Early Thanksgiving morning I remembered that there is usually a 5k turkey run. I went online to see if I could register the day of the event and I could. I decided since it is usually packed that I would cycle to it because I was worried I wouldn’t be able to find a parking spot (plus it was pretty close and would give me an excuse to ride my bike!) I stuffed a canned good in my top tube bag to donate (just barely fit!) and headed down to the start of the race.
I signed up to do a local trail run for a charity event with my sister and a friend Tracy on Sunday – we woke up and arrived early to register the day of the event and I knew the parking lot was small so I wanted to make sure we got a decent spot. The run was going to be a 10k – what I didn’t know was that the route would take us up every single steep incline that was in the forest.
The Ironmaster’s Challenge is a 50K or a 15K trail run or hike at Pine Grove Furnace State Park – I like hiking and I like running so why not try out a trail run and see how it goes?
