|That's what I call some mobile aid!|
Then we gathered on the dirt road next to Mohican Adventures Campground and Rob yelled Go! So we were off and I was running with the lead group to start. They were flying up the first few hills and really going at a fast pace. For some reason I just kept running with them at that fast pace. My biggest problem is when my legs feel good I like to really push it. So we were cruising along and a few of us missed the first turn of the day! Luckily we quickly realized what we did and got back on course. So about two miles into the race we reached Big Ass Hill and began our trek up that monster! As we were climbing up that steep beast I looked over and seen some younger guy running up Big Ass Hill. What?!! I have ever seen anyone run up that hill but this kid ran the whole thing like it was no big deal. The rest of us were dying when we finally made it to the top..lol. From there we had to take the road over to fire tower and when we got there T-P's mobile aid station was all set up with snacks and water. He was also offering a clothing drop since the temperature had risen a lot since the early morning cold. After refueling, we took off toward the bridal staging area and then hit the bridal trails in the southern part of the Mohican State Forest.
