Performance: Average
Course: Cross-country: First part was alternating between gravel and grass. The scenery was beautiful. The race was in Phinizy Swamp, a protected natural area known for wildlife and especially water foul. Every once in a while, we'd hear a weird bird noise. In fact, the "starting gun" was a duck call. My favorite part of the race was the last 1/2 mile, when we turned and ducked into the woods and got to really trail run, navigating around tree roots, branches and rocks. It's pouring rain the whole time, too. Love it!
