Race report: Trail Stomp

Trail Stomp 5K

November 28, 2015 — Belle Plaine, KS

5K #36

Place: 14/25

Time: 32:02

Slick course with some freezing taking place the previous two days. Still, this would prove to be the easiest of the three race courses on the day.

Ran with Kami in each event. This was the one we fared the best in. We were slow, but remained steady most of the way.

Trail Stomp 1-mile

5K #36

Place: 18/21

Time: 9:47

Got a slow start and never really sped up, but this day was just about having fun. Had to work the event, too, so I was there to take photos and write a story as well as participating. Monetary/food donations went to local food bank, so a good cause always makes it worthwhile.

Trail Stomp 2-mile Xtreme

November 28, 2015 — Belle Plaine, KS

2-mile #2

Place: 31/33

Time: 48:21

Most difficult course ever. Not sure how anyone “raced” this. Much slower than even a walking pace for us. Lots of climbing up hills and muddy slopes, trudging through mud and sliding all over the place. We wound up going about 1/4 mile too far and nearly getting frostbite. But we still managed to have a good time. We always do, I suppose.
