I officially signed up for a new state race this coming January 30th in Issaquah, Washington. I’ll be in Seattle for work the week prior, so I went ahead and took the opportunity to spend an extra night and hit a half of a half marathon (6.55 mi) trail run called the Blast from the Past race at Taylor Mountain.

Outside of treadmills in my hotel or a few runs around Pike Place market, I’ve never run outside of the city of Seattle. I love trail runs and I’m really looking forward to kicking off the new year with a new state right off the bat.

The pictures of the single track for this race look awesome and the race description promises nice views of Mt. Rainier. I know this one will be a little more scenic than my neighborhood runs in Georgia.

I’ll be sure to take some pictures and video and post them along with a race review after I’m done.
