    After 5 road halves, I decided to give the trails a shot. The race starts out on a paved road (uphill), then switches to dirt/gravel and you enter the trail after a mile and a half or so. The trail felt good- nice and soft, but not muddy. It had rained a couple of days prior. the trail was single file for the bulk of the race. I managed to keep up with the middle of the pack until around mile 4, at which point I stepped off the trail and let several pass. There were only around 130 runners for the half and I ended up finishing 80th at 2:51. My PR on the road is 2:22, so I was happy with my time. There were a couple of places that were confusing and easy to get off the trail. I’ll have to do a better job of looking at maps if trails remain in my future. I fell several times. Watch for stumps and rocks under leaves! lots and lots of small up and down hills – not super steep, but definitely a workout. Several small stream crossings that could be jumped and one that was low enough that could be crossed on the rocks. Then one around mile 10 that was ankle deep and there was no way to avoid getting wet.
    There was an open field to run across that would be a good place for passing had anyone been behind me at that point(maybe around mile 9ish). The best part was that the last .75 mile was pretty much all downhill on the same paved road as the beginning.
