10.4 mi, 1:27:29, 8:24 avg
6:00 start was a little bit too early, but was hoping to catch Joe and Jamie as they finished their run to at least say hi. Walked Stella and started running just after 7:00 but did not see them. Then kept on going and ran over to Longleaf to meet up with the Strider's for the July 4th run which had started at 7:00. Stopped and said hi and stashed my gatorade. Marie said she had seen Thomas fly by her (said he ran so quietly she didn't hear him come from behind until he passed).
I ran up and turned around just past the bridge, saw Thomas coming back as I was heading north. Stopped again on the way back to finish my gatorade and grabbed a second one from their cooler. Talked to David J a little bit (hadn't seen him in quite a while - he'd been out first for prostate cancer, and then while ramping back up ran into some heel pain which won't go away). Cynthia, Renee and several others were there also, tried not to stop too long. Got going again and finished up the last 2.4 miles home.
More exhausted than I thought once I got home. Couldn't believe I fit in more than 10 miles after yesterday's run made 6 miles seem far!
Weather was not so bad, about 75 degrees and nice when in the shade.
