Last Tuesday night, I ran the second race of the Endless Summer Trail Run Series!
It was the Lebanon Jensen Lake 10k.
All the races in this series start at 6:30 sharp. Dustin and I were a little worried about getting to Eagan (a far southern suburb of Minneapolis) where Lebanon park is, in time to check in for the race. Fortunately, we both were able to leave work early, and we were lucky because the traffic wasn’t really so bad. We made it there by 6 pm with plenty of time to spare.
I opted out of a “warm-up” jog since it was nearly 90 degrees and humid, but Dustin had plenty of time to go for a quick warm-up. The line for bib pick-up was quick and easy. A bit before 6:30, everyone gathered at the start-line, and then we were off.
By the way, this race seemed quite a bit bigger than the French 5k. I am not sure how many people were there, but I would guess around 700.
…and I leave you with this picture of a shirtless trail racer. Yowsa!
