Ed and I met up with Richard at his house for a nice 6 mile trail loop that Richard worked out. Of course, as soon as we entered the trail it started pouring down. Oh well, we hadn't been on a sloppy muddy trail run in a while and the temps were just right as well. Since I was wearing racing flats, I had to watch my step on the slippery rocks, but my shoes were surprisingly grippy on this terrain. The weather combined with the technical terrain did affect our pace, however, and it took us well over an hour to complete the 6 mile loop. Tomorrow is the Fleet Feet Monte Sano 15K and I'm not sure if I have my legs back yet to actually "race" it. Either way, I will treat it as a tempo run.
