F3 Lexington’s BRR team met earlier this week so I guess this thing where we run up a mountain for 208 miles is really happening. Time to run some serious hills to get ready. No better route than MJ’s Hell Hill. Despite the Twitter and email warnings, 12 pax posted anyway. Great seeing some new faces at Stride.
Conditions: 60s, humid of course
