Eldora Trail 10k

This weekend I did my second trail race of the summer, the La Sportiva Eldora Trail 10k. The course was at the Eldora Mountain Resort along the Nordic Center trails. It was pretty muddy in parts but overall a fun and technical course. I ran along with a colleague from Local Matters (@nicobrx), who snapped a pic of me crossing the finish. There wasn't as big of an elevation gain as the Evergreen Mountain Run but much steeper descents than I had run on before (+489ft, -551ft).

My time was 55:43 which is decent but I know if I hadn't played in my rec. league hockey game the night before I'd have done much better. Next race is the Holy Cow Trail Stampede in Westminster which ought to be a fast one, on the trail (more of a path) where I did most of the training for the Marathon.
