and terri is the biggest story on the trail right now;
she got thru another yard with about a minute to spare.

she is in pretty good spirits.
she just needs to survive this, the 10th yard
and one more
to reach the road.

the road loop is way easier than the trail loop.
and that is where a runner can still keep up the endless 4.1667 miles an hour,
but have a chance to recover.

meanwhile, the drum beats on.
the runners run,
the miles pile up.
and everyone’s focus is to get to where the race begins
with a minimum of physical problems.
