Running update: The Apple Creek 50K race I was training for this spring was a wonderful event, and a great first 50K race for me. The race started just after sunrise and it was well organized and supported throughout the course. The trails were muddy but there was excellent weather for the race itself. The picture below, is about an hour after I finished the race, where I've clearly had time to rinse off all the mud and change into fresh clothes. :) I came in 4th overall and was the 1st female finisher, in just under 5 hours! The training clearly paid off, and I look forward to running this event again in the future.
