A PAX of 5 (twelve legs total) came out to Early Risers to make sure the trails were safe for the Riverrock races during the day. With all the rain last night the trails were still relatively good.
No reason to stay off the trails since there will be hundreds on them in a few hours. Off we went – Northbank to BI then Buttermilk. Vinny bailed on us at Tredegar to meet his BFFs at Breakfast Club while the rest of us stayed on the trails. Sallie was off leash most of the run, pretty cool looking back to see green eyes coming for you. Also Sippy and YHC had not run the new Texas Beach trail, why not in the dark and wet.
Nothing too unusual on the trails, besides a bra left on the ground at the Riverside water stop. YHC stuck to a ratio of one fall per mile but no scrapes. Running Buttermilk with the sunlight poking through and then across the Nickel Bridge with the sunrise was the highlight.
