<p>Great job, especially hitting below your goal time on, er, questionnable training <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title="">  I am completely sucked into the trail thing too right now; hopefully someday we can do a LIT meetup at a trail race.  Congrats on pulling through the hard parts and beating your goal time!!</p>

<p>KitKat - the key to remember with trails is 'runnable real estate.'  If it looks runnable, then by all means go for it...because there will be moments when things may not seem quite so runnable...the other thing I think of on trails is 'light on my feet, come out unscathed.'  You really need to pick up your feet, spend as little time in contact with the trail as possible (particularly if it's a technical trail).  A LOT of people are afraid of downs, I tend to 'bounce' down hills on the trails - again, it's being light on my feet and not tripping up.</p>

Awesome, fun race Alicia! Congrats - nice to know you can pick up and race with very little training and have a good time!<br><br>
Kitkat, I've read somewhere on trails if you think you need two extra steps, take three.
