Sunday afternoon was the WORS 8K at Stanky Creek. I'd already spent most of the weekend working at GiveCamp Memphis, so I really didn't know how well I'd fare during this race.

Turns out, it's possible to run an 8K quite well with very little sleep!

I felt pretty good for most of the race. The weather was cool (36F) and the trails were soppy, muddy, and slippery. There's really not much else to say about this race, other than I'm really happy that I bought the Salomons. They performed exactly as I'd hoped, keeping me on track while many other runners were slipping and sliding all over the place.

Next week is the 10K at Shelby Farms (another amazing place to run). I'm looking forward to the race, but I'm a little bummed to see this series end. It's been a blast!
