Fools 50K/25K Familiarization Run

View from Pine Hollow, overlooking the Kendall Hills area

Even though I didn't feel like getting out of bed this morning it was going to be too nice of a day to pass up. So, I drove over to the Pine Hollow parking lot and met a large group of runners that showed up to take part in Lloyd Thomas' Fools 50K/25K familiarization run today. Lloyd is the RD of this race which will be taking place on April 5th. For more information, visit the race website.

The weather was almost identical to yesterday but today warmed up faster and the high temperature got close to 60, making the trails very sloppy by the end of our run. Everyone began running at 8am and we covered the entire 25K course. When I was all done I walked up and ran down a couple hills in the Kendall Hills area to finish up with a total of 16 miles. I'm very happy with my back to back effort this weekend and most pleased that I have no soreness anywhere. I need to continue getting as many miles as I can in the next month before tapering for MMT and today was a good step in that direction. Here are a few more photos from today's run...
