2014-11-12 - Taper

~3.2 miles @ ~13.3 min/mi

"Remember the Rule!" I admonish Amber, David, Kerry, and Kristin at the loading dock where we're about to start our trek at 5:45am. "If I'm not here by 0547, don't wait for me!" Today I barely make it on time, what with taking out the trash, catching up on correspondence, and heavy traffic on the highway. "When the Big Hand is on the Seven," David replies. Kristin's hip flexor/psoas is still recovering, and I'm tapering for the 50 miler that I just learned is THIS Saturday, not 10 days away. So the two of us take it slowly and turn back halfway to the W&OD Trail, bidding farewell to those who plan a ~9 mile morning. Trail talk ensues, along with delightful stories of Kristin's kids and how they admonish each other to be more enlightened. Good lessons for us all! Runkeeper records route.
