black diamond put on a very fun trail race saturday morning up at snowbird. a laid back/informal atmosphere, cool people, well marked and set single track course, a plethora of great loot to win(i won a really nice running waist pack that i have been eyeballing for a while) and perfect weather! i really enjoyed myself. trails are sooooo much more fun than roads. i don't know my results yet. just waiting for them to be posted on the black diamond website. i crashed and burned on my fifth mile. got a couple rocks stuck in my hand and banged up my shoulder and leg, but will tell you i jumped back up without missing a beat and kept on going.
i am a total amateur at this whole racing thing, but i can tell you that i think it is pretty fantastic.
picked me up a new hat.
