Rocky Raccoon 25K
I got up at 4:30 this morning and went out to Huntsville State Park. I started working traffic control at 5:30 and then ran the 25K (15.5 miles) at 8 a.m. My intention was to finish the race and not screw up my sore ankle. I managed to do that, but I tripped on roots several times and fell. My ankle is not any worse tonight, but my body is sore from falling. I finished in 4:34:30, a little off my 25K PR of 2:31:00, set in 1995. This was my 13th consecutive year for running the Rocky Raccoon 50K or 25K.
