Northwest trail race: 1st baby!

Today I did my first Northwest trail race - a 16k in Sammamish.  The boys came to see me off at the beginning of the race, and to play in the bushes (which we're now freaking out were poison oak - oh God I hope they weren't).  It was a small field - just 34 for the 16k.  But I got first!  Woohoo!!!  Well, fifth overall, but first woman.  I won a free shirt and I'm happy happy happy.  Can't wait for another Northwest trail run.

Here's the funny thing - the coordinator was talking to Matt during much of the race - it turns out the coordinator started these races because he was inspired by PCTR (my old favorite trail running group).  Rad.
