Tatonka Trail Run and Fall Snapshots

Yesterday morning Jaycob and I raced in the 2nd annual 10K Tatonka Trail Run in Glorieta, New Mexico.  It was quite a different experience compared to last year, when my very-pregnant self walked the 5K course!  It was fun to be able to run it this year while Ady spent the morning with her babysitter.  I haven't been doing a lot of trail running since having the baby, but it was a beautiful day for a run and the trails were fun with lots of ups and downs and bright fall colors in their prime.  It was a chilly morning but warmed up during the race.  My goal was to run the whole race without walking (done!), and also to finish before all the cupcakes were gone (check!).  I have high ambitions.  Admittedly, I was not very prepared for the intensity of the race, nor did I mentally prep for a run that would take me that long, but I feel a sense of accomplishment afterwards.  (Not to mention a sense of delayed onset muscle soreness.)  Jaycob had a great race and got the bronze medal!
