Magnolia Hill 11.5K Trail Run
It was hot and humid this morning for the XTerra Magnolia Hills 11.5K Trail Run near Navasota. I had never run this race before or ran at the location. Most of the trails were very narrow, ups and downs and twists and lots of muddy spots. I took one light fall, but managed to grab a tree and cushion the fall. I walked through the muddy areas to avoid slipping and falling. I finished in a slow 2:13:27. However, it was a PR, since I never ran a 11.5K race before. I was the only runner in the 70 and over age group, so I was first. I also won a door prize, a free entry into a future XTerra race. This was my 43rd race in 2015, my 805th lifetime race and my 2093rd consecutive day of running.
