Well I've heard of it but never been a part of a misdirected crowd. I was feeling good despite the heat. Vassar College is a beautiful campus. First mile in just over 8 min. Still doing well heading into what I assumed was 2 miles and then never saw a mile marker. Then suddenly people were running at me. I assumed it was an out and back section even tho I didn't remember one on the course but then people started to say turn around. It was very confusing. I finally turned around. I am totally guessing on the mileage since we apparently missed a turn somewhere and were turned around but not quite as a group. Near the finish someone near me said he went 3.4 miles and I know I turned around further than he did. Well my goal was to be faster than Thursday and get the run in despite the heat and both were accomplished.
