1 hard, one easy.
I'll tell you about the easy breezy, colorful one first. We did Run or Dye a couple weeks back( a little slow on my blogging). It was in LA, & appealed to me cause not only is it a short little jaunt, that my 8 year old girlie can do....but you also come out of it looking a bit tye-dyed. Runners are given colored powder to throw on each other, & there are spots during the race that volunteers lob the powder at you too. Fun stuff, except for the big chunk of it a rather tall guy in front of my chucked over his shoulder right as we were beginning to run. I was COLOR blind for a minute or two, as I picked out of my eye, while doing a slow trot.
This past weekend, Richard & I did our 3rd "Great Silverado Footrace". It's not a big race like a lot of the others out there, with tons of people & sponsers. It's basically just you, the mountain, & maybe 40 other people....which pretty much usually leave us in the dust. I love it cause of it's grassroots feel, & because it is harder than heck! Doing the 7 mile route of up & down mountain after mountain this year was super challenging. 7 miles is hardly nothing on a paved path, but this is anything but a paved level path. This race kicks my ass...so I'm sure we'll be back for more punishment next year :)
