good Run For The Heroes - Leg 4 6.97 mi 00:55 07:53 pace

I've been looking forward to this leg all day and it didn't disappoint. Cool, near pitch black and solitude. Asked my support team not to shadow me too close so I could have some time to myself.

The run started out with a little entertainment. A little after 1am and three guys on the edge of town just hangin' out. They asked why I was running, and when I told them I got grunts of approval. Not much father along another man on his porch said I was a better man than him and asked where I was going. When I said Savannah he replied, "Damn! " The last encounter was with some stereotypical rednecks that leaned out the window of their truck and hollered at me to "Keep your ass in the grass!" Of course, I didn't dignify them with a response, and that was that.

The rest of the run was great. I was able to turn off my headlamp a few times and let the fireflies guide me. I was told the leg was hilly, which I guess would explain the pace, but I couldn't tell very well in the dark.

Feeling ok. Tired and sore, as to be expected. Hoping to get my next 7-miler in before it gets too hot in the morning.

    Forgive the typos, please. Posting at 3am on a phone apparently isn't one of my strong suits. :p

    Good choice in not responding to the watered down, telephone pole, family tree people. I saw that movie and it doesn't end well. They only come out after dark.......scary
