June 05, 2021 - Great to be back out in a race!
I ran in the Canterbury Shaker Village XC 5k. It was my first time doing this race and it had probably been about 18 months since I ran a race so I didn't really know what to expect. The race venue is an historic and very scenic location, I learned a bit about the Shakers and want to go back for a tour. The morning of the race was one of the warmest so far, I warmed up on the race course to get an idea of what it would be like. It ran up and down some hilly fields, there was some singletrack, and a huge climb up a dirt road. It was a fun and challenging course.
