Quick note on ZombieRunner Bay Trail Marathon

Update: Full RUNDown of this race is here.
 
G'day blogsphere!


I have lots of pictures and will be writing up a full race report, but it may take a while.
Meanwhile the upshot:


My first trail marathon! In 20 knot winds, rain and mud I ran 27 miles in 4:42 (half split 2:18) and felt fairly strong given the conditions throughout. No official results up yet.


More anon.

@lee, raegun, detroitrunner: thanks for your comments! 


@martha: Yes, it's true they aren't that muddy. Thats because the rain and deep puddles wash the mud off and make the mud less sticky! I realized this during the run...the muddiest  trail run would be one that had rain on it hours before but no rain when running it. 


Update (day after): Sore a bit today but not too bad....good for skiing tomorrow I think!
