Run for the Toad - 12.5 k Trail Race


Map of the run - note all the contour lines - 
lots of ups and downs

Pinehurst Lake - Colours are just starting to change
Frost on the windshield this morning!

Opening ceremonies for the last Toad Run to happen
12.5 / 25 / 50 km runs today

(Had some video coverage of the children's run but it is not working)

I started at the back of the pack. 
It took a couple of minutes to get to the start line.

Beautiful day for a trail run.
Only a little bit was out in the open.
Most was up and down under tree cover.

The steepest hill was just before the 11 km mark.

Tough climb!

Always nice to have encouragement.

My usual look of exhaustion
at the end of a race.

Wendy, Barb and I after the race.
Some of us had more time to recuperate than others.

Well done. I couldn't, my knees are too bad. Great post.
