Run - Trail (Iditapub) 4:40:00  34.0 km (8:14 / km)
9:30am - Ran the summer version of Iditapub (Readsboro, VT to the Freight Yard Pub in North Adams, MA) on a combo of snowmobile trails and the AT/Long Trail. Ran w/ Bob Dion, Tom Skrocki, Geoff Mather, Scott?. Felt good and set a pretty good pace for the first 14-15 miles, then began to fade near the water stop. Choice of warm water or iced Sam Adams.. Had the latter although it didn't sit too well. After an appropriate break took off on the AT again, Bob taking off like a bat out of hell just when I needed to back off the pace a bit. Oh well, I hung on as best I could. Found out later (at the Pub) that Bob thought i was still out front and was trying to reel me in.. Pretty slow on the last 5 miles or so as my calves turned to rubber and I feared tripping up in the rocks on the Cobble Trail, so picked my way pretty slowly. A very fun run and a lot faster and easier than in January when we had 5+ feet of snow on some of the higher spots..
