This was not a welcome sight. I was on my ninth day of running and my legs were screaming for a break. I normally tend to run 4-6 days straight and then take a day off. However, I couldn't resist the chance to run with some elite runners. Ten days in a row it would have to be.
At 6:00 a.m. we met at Questhaven Park, headlamps on. There were nine runners, including three Ironman finishers, six ultras and me. Although, I have run a 50K, so I guess I'm an ultra. One dude parted ways pretty quick, but the remaining eight ran down into Elfin Forest.

Thanks for the hat Rich! Looking forward to wearing it with pride. Speaking of motivating, I just got a text from Greg, who coincidentally wears trucker hats on runs. Tomorrow at 6:30? Sure. Eleven days in a row? No problem . . .
