The PAX were arriving late, in Raleigh 5:45 is just early. Mid 70’s and very high humidity.
As we headed off in the gloom we all kept a tight pace. The run starts out easy so there is great opportunity for the PAX to chat until conversation dwindles and the hill climbs start. We have 2 meetup points to allow for catchup (of the PAX and Oxygen). Unfortunately the PAX is running tighter and the meetup points are serving less of a purpose.
Last week we hit a 46:30 run time, Today we hit a 46:00. Fartsack hill is really a beast, but we are all getting better at it. For the record, just that hill alone is 134 ft elevation gain in about half a mile.
