Woodside 35k - Muddy, bloody and brutal
Saturday a group of us traveled down to Woodside for the Woodside 35K.
This is a beautiful trail in the redwoods with lots of climbing and incredible views. It rained all day with a few hard downpours. The mud was extensive and deep. It was a tough, tough run for me due to the mud.
I lost a few toenails along the way, but it was well worth it. It was the toughest trail run I've done to date.
Today I was not too sore but pretty tired. Slept in and then headed to Cavitt for a run. Was able to squeak out 6.8 very slow miles. There was some mud on the trail and I had PTSD every time I saw a puddle (Oh no, not more mud!)
Shannon took some pics and I will leave it up to her to post all the gory details of our epic run.
