The start of the Cougar Mountain Trail Running Series feels like the inauguration of Summer for me. I’ve run the Cougar 10 Mile six of the last seven years.
I had another PR this year – 1:22:18 which was good enough for 6th place. Last year I ran it in 1:24:46 and won the race. This year the field was significantly more competitive.
I had a ton of fun catching up with the local runners and enjoying my favorite trails. Excited for the next race in a few weeks.
The true prize for me was the awesome photos by Takao Suzuki. One of my all time favorite photos of me running.
Still loving the Pure Grit 4 as my go to speed shoe on the trails.
