Ken & Brian discuss a few final race details before the gun goes off while patient runners meander around with baited breath to start.
The gun went off @ 9:00 AM sharp & we were of; everyone jockeying for their ideal spot in the train of runners. 2011 has been a slow year starting for Know No Boundaries as far as building a good mileage base because we spent the month of January in Gabon. Our first boundary for 2011 was the 25K at the Post Oak Challenge in February. The six hours is not the boundary, it is the fact that I went into this with a strained left knee. I used Kenisio Tape last night, but as I did it myself, it was not likely done right. I did watch the video though, so we will see. I guess I should have shaved my legs first, eh? Oh well, it will hurt coming off.
Snaking through the Turkey Mountain trails we came across our first aid station at mile 1.As always, Susan is all smiles. She & her cohorts were fabulous in the early hours of the race. They even provided a few "snakes" to set the mood.
It is always great running Turkey Mountain as friends abound.Lyle "the man" , looking good here as we cross paths.
Charlie looks like he's flyin' by & in perfect form.
Caroline also looks great as we all seem to cross paths all day.
Micah & her friend were great & I am sure were popular with everyone there.
