Probably the biggest update to make is that I put the wrong name in the previous post. Haha. We are actually at the WHISTLING Pines -not the Whispering Pines. Though the latter does sound pretty serene.
Other news of note, our first runner, Michael Sullivan, came through the first loop in 3rd place. He was rocking it. He ran the loop in 45:30.
After seeing the course, I am hoping for an 8 minute pace, but we’ll see. I’ve never really run a trail race like this. Should be an interesting experience.
One final note, my fingers are freezing. I apologize for the typing mistakes.
