this was my first time running since IM LOU. It was chilly, wet and muddy, perfect fall trail conditions! Haha! I went into the race with the plan to just see how the knee felt. I was pleasantly surprised that it cooperated nicely and I was able to run the entire race. Took it nice and easy and just had a fun day in the woods with friends! Always a fun series! Great to run into some old friends too!
