Thanks to all the volunteers who sttod out in the woods in the rain and told sweaty people what to do.
I will get to posting the results here and on Atlantic Chip hopefully tomorrow after we decompress a bit and spend some time with our kids and clean up a bit.
I have been trail running for about 30 years and am rejuvinated by it. Breathing deeply in the woods and wild places is something everyone should do, what ever their capability.
