Risk stops fun

stats of the week: run 31 km, cycled 64 km

I felt it's time to get back to running. So I chose a trail run in the nearby hills, a challenge of half marathon distance and 540 altitude meters. Still a bit of a risk after I didn't run a longer distance than 10 km since London.

The risk turned out to be a different one. I felt happy on the course, I have always enjoyed trails. So I increased the speed on the very last steep descent, flew into the very last bend before reaching the road to the finish. Alas, I reached the road, but in full length from knee to face. Shocked and full of pain I raced the final 400 meters to the finish line, still winning my small age group of 5 runners from 65 on.
