First North Carolina race since I moved here 2 months ago. It was nice to have my new running partner Stacie to go with. It was raining, and I was nervous that the dirt trail around the lake would be a yucky, muddy mess. Luckily it wasn't bad! It was a fun race and well organized, definitely one to do again. The shirts were nice too- not dry wick but a nice thick cotton with a decent design. No PR, but still a fun run. I'm still getting back in shape so I didn't expect a PR, wanted 52 but knew 54 was a possibility. The dirt trail also slows me down, but oh how my legs love it compared to asphalt! Good tune up run and racing today will help me get ready for the Outer Banks 1/2 in Nov.
