Lesson learned: two hobbling marathoners trying to meet each other 1.5 miles apart takes a while.
We also share the desire for more. More time, more distance, more races. The therapeutic nature of the marathon is addictive. So we immediately started planning our next race. Right now we're thinking Race Against the Sun, June 18th. For me it'll be a 36-mile trail race at Ruffner Mountain from sun down to sun up -- my first night race! For her, it will be a dance ultra from sun down to sun up in the middle of the same Appalachian mountains that inspired the creation of her craft.
