Footprints on Earth 5K Trail Run
I ran the Footprints on Earth 5K Trail Run in College Station this morning. It was put on by the Forestry Department of Texas A&M. After the rain came though yesterday, it was cold last night and this morning. The temperature was in the low 50's at race time. It is surely the last cool temperature we will see until next fall. The race was rather small, a little over 100 runners and walkers. What I did not realize was that the race was on trails. Lots of heavy gravel and places to turn an ankle. With my weak hamstring, I took it easy and finished in 38:23. Each finisher was given two trees and I won a nice door prize, dinner for 5 at Chipotle's.
