Royston, GA 12/03/2011
On this day I did a trail 10K. It was at Victoria Bryant State Park in Royston Georgia. It was put on by a group that does a series of trail races and they always advertise on their website “Walkers are encouraged to participate – need maintain a 16 minute mile pace for an official time”, so I signed up.
I don’t have much desire to do these short races, but I had just recently bought a new pair of trail running shoes (Nike Air Pegasus +28 Trail) and wanted some good trail time to try them out. I liked the shoes and did notice quite a difference with traction.
I really do enjoy trail events; it’s a different type of a challenge. The only thing I dislike about this race was the distance. I remember at mile 3 being bummed out because it was half over already.
RD did a video of the trail prior to race on put in on youtube:
