Hocking Hills Indian Run 2015 (Ohio)
On Saturday morning 19 September 2015, my husband drove with me to the Hocking Hills State Park (in Logan, Ohio) where I would be running the Hocking Hills Indian Run near and through the Hocking State Forest. This event offers 5k, 10k, 20k, 40k, and 60k distances. I've done the 5k and 10k in the past. I chose to do the 20k distance this year. Barefoot, of course . We arrived at the Dining Lodge, where I quickly checked in and claimed my t-shirt and bib number. The 20k distance starts at the Lodge and uses individual start times, but all runners have to start by 11am and I was nearly out of time! With a look of uncertainty, the starter asked if I was running without shoes. "Yes"...
Race the Reaper
Did Race the Reaper 6 Mile+ Adventure Run with my son Lukas.
I ran this race two years ago but for Lukas it was his first time.
There were 26 obstacles on the 6 mile route, the toughest one for me was A-frame Monkey Bars.
Lukas was trying hard but had to skip this one.
We both finished in 1 hour 50 minutes. Lukas (10) was the youngest runner at the race and placed 3rd in his age group. I ran the whole race barefoot.
The weather was great and we had a blast as always
