Trail running on Bowen Island

I participated in Run For The Ferry on Bowen Island last Saturday. This was my first trail run and my second competitive 10k run. My time was 40:32, nearly identical to my Stampede Road Race time of 40:19. The lack of improvement is kind of disappointing, but then again, the trail had plenty of hills and was more difficult than a typical road course.

This will be my last competitive run until the spring. My goal of running a 10k in under 40min can wait until then, and in the meantime I will continue with endurance training.
