#81 Salem

This was a bit of a last-minute decision, and I arrived at the site with just a few minutes to spare. The race took place on a farm, with horses around, and a bit of a hike between parking and the start. It as mostly meadow-running, with one mile of the race a pure trail race in the woods. As a result of the recent rainstorms, the race was slightly shortened due to mud, but it still felt long enough. I ran hard and felt good, coming in 13th, and was happy to walk away with a really nice t-shirt, especially for a debut race. Thanks, race organizers!
