When I run this trail I nearly always think about the first time I ever ran it, June 4, 2010, the Twilight Trail Run. The second race I had ever run. 48:19, I thought I might die by the end of the race. My time for that same race the next year was 47:26. From that day, June 3, 2011, forward pretty much every Friday afternoon I was out on that trail running further and further until I finally ran the whole damn thing. When I run it these days I recall fondly the rock or tree or hill I would force my self to run to before I could walk again. It is a nice reality check for how far I really have come since my decision to become a runner in January of 2010 and my decision to get serious in May of 2011.
Do you have a route or a trail or even a race that is this sort of milepost or memory lane for you?
