Medoc Trail Races – October 15, 2016 Marathon

The Medoc Trail Races is a cool race series in North Carolina that I had the opportunity to participate in October 15th.  They offer three distances – a 5k, 10 miler, and a marathon.  I chose to run the marathon as a part of my goal to run all 50 states before I turn 50 in May of 2027.  Read on to see how my race went.
