Running in kilt?

Funny how you can pick out one individual from a crowd, but this morning, at the Dirty Bird 5K in Wooster, OH, I saw a guy running wearing a kilt.

Scrap, were you in Ohio today?

I only ran the 5k. I started near the rear of the pack and finished 44th, about 3 minutes behind you. I've only got a few 5K's under my belt, but I'm looking forward to more. This was the 1st trail run for me, I slipped and fell twice (wrong footwear), but no one passed me on the trail.

My goal is, by August 1, to be able to do a reasonable time 10K.

Well, I'll, be doggoned! Congratulations! You picked a great event to get your feet wet (both figuratively and literally!) I've given up running on the road all together. Everything is on the trail.

I'll be home again 17-19 June for the Mohican Marathon if you want to get together some time over the weekend.
