Today, Thin Mint Sprint Committee Member, Kristen N. Campbell shares her thoughts on why you should run the Tough Cookie Trail Run at this year's 10th Annual Thin Mint Sprint.
The Trail Run is soooooo easy! You just crawl up this big hill called Heart Attack Hill, jump over a few trees, dodge some deer, and collapse across the finish line. Ok, so its NOT easy, but it has to be one of the most fun runs I've ever done. It is challenging and well worth it! I don't do many trail runs and I don't run it for a time, I run it to survive it. The trail poses new obstacles every year because mother nature decides what the new challenges will be that year. I've done it at least 5 times and each year it seems fresh and new. My friend and I look forward to running this every year. Not your average course, so don't miss out on running the Trail Run! I've already signed up, so who's with me?
