According to the sign up sheet, you "run as many laps as you can get in during the 6 allotted hours. The winner is the person who has the most completed laps (that are started by 10:59 p.m.)."
This was a very difficult trail run, considering I haven't ran trails since I moved to Japan (almost 2 years ago). I started off a little too fast and the terrain was hilly, rocky, muddy, and with serious climbs. Luckily, I was able to run with K the Chemist's daughter, who is less than half of my age, by the way. We chatted about important issues like whether or not Jacob should end up with Bella in the Twilight series. We discussed the future of the books and the new movie New Moon to be released in November. Chatting about my favorite new books helped to keep my mind off the pain of running the treacherous trails. Needless to say, after 1 loop and an hour and a half later, we stopped. It was getting dark and starting to rain, so we called it quits. It was a good run, but more difficult than I had expected. And since I was carrying about an extra 5 pounds around my gut, courtesy of mass quantities of Taco Cabana and Chick-fil-A, I was in no mood to continue torturing myself. A campfire and s'mores were calling my name.
Here are some pictures Husband took of the event. (Husband didn't run because he had participated in the Dam Run 10K earlier in the morning.)
At the end! We pooped out at this point.
This was taken at the 3.2 mile loop. We were still fresh and ready to take on another 3.2 miles of hills, mud, and rocks.
