The Dances with Dirt series trail run events in Gnaw Bone, Indiana were held last weekend. These events are run mostly in Brown County State Park and are surely a challenge for most of us "flat landers" with a lot of single track trails and just a ton of elevation gain and loss. And this year, we got about an hour of rain during the day that added to the adventure level. Thank goodness the temps were warm. It was tough, as it usually is. But, all-in-all, a rough day on the trail beats a good day most anywhere else.
Check out some of the pictures that fellow runner Tom Chute took along the way.
If I remember correctly, this is Ogle Lake. Beautiful!
A lot of the trails looked great before the rain.
And, after the rain, a lot of the trails were a little tougher.
It's a little tough losing the trail within a mile of the finish (while standing in 40 degree water)!
