Gold rush trail run

On Saturday, Sam and I tackled the gold rush trail run (along with 250 odd other people), starting in Daylesford and climbing up past the stunning sailors falls along the goldfields track, finishing at the Sailors Falls Estate. It was an amazing amount of fun, with an extra 2ish km chucked onto the end (total 13km ish) for free due to a parks Victoria issue. The course was stunning, with some single track, logs to climb and puddles to avoid. Not a single snake was seen and the exceptional weather made for a great day.  As with all these things you learn a number of lessons, the key lessons learnt this time was make sure your pants are on the right way and embrace the hills (especially when the whole course is hills!!!)
