Dirty Dog Race Report
49 of us toed the line today in Courtland, Ohio. We started at 9am. I like these later starts. It gives you a chance to get there without feeling rushed. The course was through woods mostly with some sections next to Mosquito lake. On the drive there, the sunrise was amazing with partly cloudy skys. The yellows and oranges were spectacular. Once I got to the race, the clouds moved in and we had our typical dingy gray day. Half the trails were in good condition with good traction. The other half was like running through deep sand. The tough conditions lead to some slow times and a lot of sweat. Another good run put on by my club, The N.E. Ohio Trail Club.
