My plan was to run the first 6 a.m. leg, so that I would be back in time for church, and then go back for one or two legs at the end of the run. Rick and his friend John (a fellow ultra-runner who was planning on doing the whole 100K with Rick), along with Karen, Holden and myself headed out right at 6.
What a great way to start out a Sunday! Watching the sun come up on beautiful cool morning, while running 6.2 miles at a very comfortable 10 min per mile pace with great company. I'm not sure that can be topped. Well, maybe one way, but I won't get into that on here.
I was just about to head back down to TW when I got a call from Karen that Rick and John had decided to call it quits 43 miles into the run. No more trips to The Woodlands for me today. Probably a good thing 'cause JP was being an a** about it anyway.
Congrats to Rick for a great 43 mile run! A 62 mile run on those concrete trails in The Woodlands is unfathomable to this Huntsville Sate Park runner! My feet hurt just thinking about it! Best of luck at Western States!
