This past Saturday was a really fun run–the last big group run before the H.U.R.T. 100. We did an easy reverse Trek route of 10 miles. The pace was supposed to be easy and we started off late for us–7:00 a.m.
I won’t try to name everyone who was there since it was such a large group and I would surely slight someone by failing to mention their name. Unfortunately someone forgot to tell the lead runner we were supposed to take it easy. Of course, this particular lead runner was also one of the few out there who was not entered as a participant for the H.U.R.T. 100. He set a blistering pace and what was supposed to be an easy 2:30 or 3 hour run, turned into a 2:10 sprint. Who was this speedster?
The one and only Jacob Dewald! He was helped over big rocks and such by his dad, Steve. Steve would just pick Jacob up by his Camelback and lift him up over the rocks.
We ended the run with a great potluck and fun conversation. One week from right now, it will all be history! The 2006 H.U.R.T. 100 will be over. I hope I am healthy and over this nasty cold before then!
See you all soon. Aloha, Bob
