A hilly 7 mile-ish loop through Germantown Metropark. We had all the ice melt earlier in the week and it started raining 12 hours prior and did not let up. The whole was a sloppy muddy mess...and totally awesome. The object here wasnt to post fast times because no one did. We got to ford stream up to just below your knee, numerous little creeks and pretty much any area that wasnt a stream was some depth of mud. Very slippery, very squishy, very fun
What would you do differently?:

This was my second longest run all year so I wasnt in peak running shape but my goal was just some miles in and have some fun

Warm down:

eating a bagle walking to my car. Getting almost naked in the parking lot to get some of the worst portions of my muddy outfit off. The best aprt was the hot shower at home

What limited your ability to perform faster:

ankle deep mud?
