Ran with Joe, Jamie, and Renee from Longleaf to Diane's house where we picked up Craig and Diane. Ran from there to Starkey, stopping at the shelter briefly before turning back. On the way into the park I talked everyone into an a few sets of an "Indian run" or sometimes called last man sprint or leap frogs. Everyone complains at first, but then they seem to have fun and some distance paces and the overall pace picks up.
I was feeling pretty good until about mile 11 when the mugginess of the morning caught up to me, I stopped for a bit, then started again but went slower for mile 12. Joe and Renee went ahead. I felt better once we finished mile 12 and got back to the old pace and even picked it up slightly for mile 13.
Picked up Tom and Andy from Jenny's about 12:00 and took them to lunch at Tarpon Tavern - Andy picked it but it's one of my favorites. I wanted to live there one time - mile 36 of the 46 mile Pinellas Trail Challenge has an aid station there. Great to spend time with my two favorite boys.
