OC Chili Winter Trail Run Series 2012

The Last of Three 5-Mile Trail Runs
in the
OC Chili Winter Trail Run Series

My Super-Cool medal
for completing all Three
5-Mile Runs in the Book That Event OC Chili Winter Trail Run Series.

There had been a lot of rain the day prior to the run so the trails were closed. Instead of hitting the trails, the course was altered and was run along the interior roads of the park. Even though I prefer trails, the scenery was fantastic, the air was crisp and fresh, and the dusting of snow on the surrounding mountains was an extra-special treat.

Perfect day for a 5 mile hilly run!

Crisp clean air!
Low temps.
Views of the snow-dusted mountains.
Loved it!

Got a chance to see Amy Smith before the run!

It was her first 5 mile trail run!
Too bad it wasn’t on the trails, but she at least got a taste of some pretty good hills.
She looked great out there!

With Amy Smith & Christopher Lenihan before the run
Chris did all 3 runs in the series too!
With Chris L. after the run
We got the super-cool medal for completing all 3 runs in the series.
I chose the medal as a necklace; Chris chose a super-neat magnet.

Enjoying some post-run chili

We came prepared!
I’m all snuggled up in my sleeping bag and bivy
Christopher Lenihan lounges on his comfy blanket while enjoying his 2nd helping of chili!
It was a great way to start the day.

Can't wait to do this series again next year!

Wishing y'all a Happy and Healthy Day!
