Melanie and I, b+k, and tbert all participated in the 7th Annual Sour Grapes Half & Half Run. Melanie and I agreed that it was definitely the toughest course we’ve ever run. It was located in Brainerd in the Northland Arboretum – so we were surrounded by lakes and trees. The trails were a combination of sand, dirt and grass, and there were a LOT of hills on the course. It was my first time running on anything other than asphalt, so it was pretty new for me – and pretty difficult. The results for the 10K and half marathon are shown below. I’m pretty pleased with my time of 1:35:35.
