I really didn't want to run this course today. I find it boring in the dark and figured I'd be running alone. Started a bit behind everyone and then caught up. I planned to make it as easy run. After crossing the low water area, there was a branch and as I jumped over it, I heard Mary Anne ahead of me scream. A gorilla had jumped out of the trees and scared them. It jumped in front of me too, but didn't scare me since I knew gorillas don't live in Columbia. I'm not sure who it was but may have been Tony Rigdon. After that I caught up to Clint, Scott, Mary Anne, and another guy. I decided to try their pace which felt about right. Also, Mary Anne commented on my light so I felt I needed to stay with them since only 1 had a light and it wasn't doing much good. After the mulch pile, they sped up, Scott ran ahead, Clint dropped, behind, and Mary Anne, the other guy, and I ran together. She was very appreciative of my light since she didn't want to twist her ankle again. We sped up and I guess based on splits I really didn't run much easier than Tues for some of the miles, but this was a flat course so felt easy to me.
