Okay, Longhorn HIM is done, the "season" is officially over...now onto trail running.
The Rocky Raccoon is next Saturday and weather.com says it will be low in the 50s, high in the 70s (which will likely change about 10 times in the next week), but we can go with this forecast cuz I like it. Normally, I would wear shorts and a tank top for a run in that weather, but I don't know if trail running has other "rules" for clothes. We already established that I can wear my regular road shoes as this is not a "technical" course. Regular socks?
Also, It says there are 4 fully stocked aid stations for the 25k. I assume that means I should take a bottle of water to run with and refill at the aid stations. Would that be correct to assume? and should I bring anything else with me to eat?
Wow, I am a super newbie to this. If there is anything I am missing, please let me know. I don't want to show up and people will be pointing and snickering at this woman who clearly doesn't have a clue.
If I was cockier I would go for the whole 50k, not worry about my time, just for the cool factor...but I am too scared. Maybe next year :)
