After running 5+ extra miles in Day 5, today was only 14 miles. Today was a beautiful, more relaxed run across the Roanoke Valley that included crossing the Roanoke River (Beautiful!), an interview with WDBJ to be aired beginning Monday morning, and an end on Roanoke/Mill Mountain.
Day 6 Run
The table that was here in the initial blog as been moved to a menu item. See the Stats page. We are updating it daily.
For Fitbit enthusiasts, how about 197,094 steps in 6 days? The average pace for the event so far is 10:30 minutes per mile. Also, my running watch has measured slightly less distance than the mileposts. We will start tomorrow at MP 120.25 (over half a mile farther than my watch says).
