      Two thoughts...

       

      1. Thanksgiving is what made it special

       

      2.  I liked the 5 hour cut off. It was unique. 


      Life is Good

        bike 500 miles

          Getting volunteers seems to have been the issue. My sister and I have volunteered the past 8 of 10 years. We would do chip return and would get to leave around 10:30.6:00 - 1:00 on a holiday is a bit much.

          Run until the trail runs out.
