One word WOW!!! I just did my first trail+mountain race and that was an incredible experience. It was a 6 miler with 1650ft of elevation in the last mile! that was REALLY HARD but i can't wait next year to do it again. I finished 53th out of 246 runners (1:16min) so I'm very proud of myself and I want to say a big thanks to Eric and his good advises! I think I'm hooked to this kind of events, all I think about is the next one i'll do! I just wanted to share my experience with you all and suggest to anyone who never did a trail race to do so cuz it's VERY FUN!
