Held at the Gifford Pinchot State Park, Squirrelly Tail is an amazing awesome half marathon through the wonders of rich Pennsylvania landscape. As unpredictable as Pennsylvania is, the course is usually muddy, frozen, wet, boggy, dry, rocky, dirty, woodsy, rocky you name it. Welcome to Penn's Woods!
I'm going to be honest, I went into this race with zero expectations, other than to just have fun and enjoy my time on the trails. And that's exactly what I did. In the beginning, I blew past a lot of people, and as humbling as trail running is, a handful of them passed me along the way later down the trail only to finish way ahead of me - and that's okay. I enjoyed the ups and downs of the trails and the beautiful scenery on the way. I even snapped a picture during a full-blown runner's high. Squirrely Tail, it was a great time.
