hour 13 underway.
as expected all of them ran considerably faster than the trail.
it is a cool (soon to be cold) night without a cloud in the sky.
only 3 days till the full moon (maybe a goal?)
so the road is well lit with no headlamps.

conditions are ideal for running,
and the entire field seems to be happy as clams.

of course, they are all going to “seem” happy as clams until they drop.
but dont be expecting that any time soon.
we are figuring all 33 will still be here when the sun comes up at 100 miles.

of course, this is a backyard ultra
and it is sudden death overtime.

every hour!
