Bear Creek 10 miler

I did it! I finished my first trail event - The Bear Creek 10 miler.
10 miles of trails.
10 water crossings.
countless mud bogs.

The weather was cold, but after a few miles it was perfect.
The water was cold, but towards the end my feet welcomed the cool rinse.
My shin and calf hated me towards the end.

But with my friends pulling me along, we did it!
It was a fun-filled day with lots of familiar faces.
