Trick or Treat Trail Race

This might have been the most fun race I have ever participated in.  Thank goodness I asked my friend to"The Blair Witch Project" join me, or I couldn't have done it.  It is just plain scary to be out on trails in the dark!  I don't care how good your head lamp is.  We could hear critters rustling in the bushes along the trail.  And the thing we didn't know?  We did not know that we had to cross a river twice !  through water up to our knees!  In the dark!  HOLY CRAP!  

It was the coolest thing ever.

We won a prize for the best team name.  Her last name is Knight.  My first name is Mary.... so our team was --- drum roll----

KNIGHT-MARE.

We had shirts made and everything.  It was so fun.

Four miles in the dark through a river a couple of times and tripping over rocks and roots, our time was abysmal.  

But I am absolutely certain I have never enjoyed a race so much!
