As true trail runners that we are, we had to go in to see if anyone was home.
All in all, we got in about 8 miles. Not bad for having run 58 miles the previous weekend.
God Bless You & see you on the trail.
Lots of new trails so there was a lot of new experiences.
After passing our first aid station at Flatrock, we headed back onto the trails for a double pass loop out & around the Botanical Gardens. Yours truly heads out of the woods coming up on the Botanical Garden aid station.Volunteers can make or break a race & the volunteers at this inagural race were great. The Botanical Garden workers were friendly & very upbeat. Trying to stay warm can be a chore as there is not much body heat generated when they are not running.
The road headed off towards W 41st Street N . According to Tom, this was about a mile from his homestead; he could have run home after the marathon.
At some point on the course, we topped Holmes Peak; the highest point in NW Oklahoma. During our 1st training run, it was really foggy but God saw to it that we had a sunny day with a beautiful view from the top.After heading down Holmes Peak, once again headed back into the woods. Loads of tall grass trails
