Moutain Series

The first race of the USATF-NE Grand Prix Mountain Series was last Sunday- Sleepy Hollow 10 k outside of Burlington. , VT.

The weather was a little warm,72 , but overall good with a breeze .

The course was trail on a ski slope on grass, mud , dirt , trail and more grass.

Loved it. Ups and down and then a few stretches of flat path . Mainly shaded. 

I took off too slowly conserving energy , but I felt good the whole race . No leg or glute issues which have been plaguing me this year . Energy high , I felt I could of ran the course again at the end.... 
A good sign. I racked up some good points towards the series and placed in the top 20, I ll take it . Hill training 3 ties weekly had increased my strength along with core work .

I have 6 more Mountain races this summer including MT. Washington in June, my fav from 2014, uphill for 7 miles .

VT marathon this Sunday.
