The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea.

aka Karen Blixen, whose historic home from “Out of Africa” I was fortunate enough to visit last year. Great quote.

So I did the OC Winter Chili Trail Run — a 5-mile trail run. I hate running. But I’ve been forcing myself since a sprained elbow has kept me largely sidelined from lifting the past three months. 

It was my first trail run and wasn’t as horrible as I’d worried. In fact, pretty fun! I walked the steeper bits, but most people did. I finished in just over an hour and at a 12:24 average pace and 7th in my age division. Much better than I expected. 

Oh, and I registered for the one next month. Go figure!
