Sticking with the No-Technology theme for the weekend, I ran a 3m obstacle race, Pair Up For Health, on Saturday morning... naked... no watch, no music, just me and the birds (oh, and 200 other people). It was my first trail race ever, set in the beautiful setting of Wildlife Prairie State Park, benefitting the Junior League of Peoria.
It was a small race with some really cool obstacles along the way...
Hay Bale Hurdles
Barrel Zig Zag
Agility Running Rope
58 foot Slide

Not the best race I ever ran, but I got my first trail race in the bag. It was a fun change of pace, but I think I prefer the pavement of road races. With marathon training in front of me, I was very cautious of my foot steps. Last thing I needed was a twisted ankle or something.
Here's some race day photos...

|Just might be the only race photo where I don't look like I'm dying!|
|Scaling the wall!|
|All sweaty at the Finish and happy to be done!|
