Shopping and peopling just aren't ever on my list of favorites. So the weekend after Thanksgiving
|I think this graffiti gets refreshed every year. The first year Andi Stracner and I made up a new story for this couple with each lap we made. It helped the night go by.|

The week leading up to this event was spent fighting off and losing the fight to a cold. So it was an easy choice to drop from the 24 hour to the 12 hour event.
The plan was to walk for 12 hours. I knew a strenuous effort would not be good or me. A trail run a few weeks before showed me that my calf was not ready for such craziness. So this run would be about moving, that is all.
That is all I did too. Maybe walking 80% of this run got me though 50K, then a drive home. I didn't suffer prolonged cold or ill effects from this effort.
The first rule of running is to run in order to run another day. That one I succeeded with.
