2017-12-24 - Almost Famous

~5.0 mi @ ~13.8 min/mi

"I am a Golden God! ... and you can tell Rolling Stone magazine that my last words were ... 'I'm on drugs'!" Barry hasn't seen the film Almost Famous, and he is tapering meds plus ramping up mileage in preparation for the Disney Dopey Challenge in a fortnight. With good pacing and good luck, all will be well. He leads Gayatri and Rebecca up the long hills along Rock Creek. We turn back and greet ultra-man Mike Edwards putting in Christmas Eve mileage with a friend.

"Eight deer! No, nine!" A herd of does and fawns, well-camouflaged, loiter by the trail. Gayatri poses by them. Rebecca analyzes meta-movies. Back at the start we climb a steep side path to KenGar for bonus effort.
