169 Towns #66: Stafford

It had been awhile since I’d had a chance to do a trail race, and with perfect weather—cool with a nice mist in the air—this was a great opportunity to get back into it. With all of the announcements about the markings on the course, I was worred this might be another poorly marked fiasco, but it turns out they really did know what they were doing, and it was very well marked. Lots of single-track, some dirt roads, and even a hand-over-hand ascent up a sand hill, made for an interesting race, and it was a fun day. There’s something special about the combination of mental and physical test you’re put through in a trail race. The tasty chili at the end was a plus, too.
