I started running a couple months ago and it has been going well! I use the word "run" loosely to mean not walking :) But I am out there getting it done! So about a month ago I went looking for a 5k to run. I found this one that I thought would be fun. It was in a state park, I thought it would be fun to run in the woods. But I didn't think of a couple things first!
First off I didn't think about how allergy season has just started up and I have asthma - which makes it much worse...yeah running in the forest was not the best idea.
Second I did not check the elevation changes...super steep hills and the first mile was almost all uphill. There was one point where there was a downhill slope and I was afraid to run because it was so steep I thought I would fall. And right after that there was an even bigger steeper hill that I had to run up!
But alas, I made it through! Here are some pictures!
