+18c, half overcast and med. wind at start.

Again a shorter stage, which is fine, as the legs are still a bit stiff
from the competition 2 days ago in Fennimore.

Again today I enjoyed the company of local runners throughout the stage.
This time not high-school runner?s track & field team runners but a bit
older members of the local running club. They didn?t run slower though!
The stage had quite a few long and fairly steep hills but they kept strong
pace - especially upwards!!

I much appreciate that local runner coming out to run the stages with me.
It makes it much much easier to get through the miles with heavy legs from
1.7 years of running. Often we talk through the first hours of the run and
by the time I realize that I am again out on the usually daily bit of
running - I am almost at the finish of the days stage :-)
