Adam, with the Boring Running blog, put on an awesome race again. While the rest of the world is running the Virtual Race, a group of us met in Papago Park in Phoenix Arizona and froze our thorns off. I showed up early to get a run in and saw Adam and Jeff running towards me. Turning, I found out Jeff was running his race early and so I tagged along and became the annoying person saying "you're almost there." Jeff finished with a PR and a giant smile (in between trying to catch his breath).
Getting back to the parking area where Adam and Jeff parked, I wondered how they parked where they did. It turns out that Rebel Adam, moved the barricades to park in the area reserved for a company picnic from 8am to 6:30pm. The park ranger came and threatened to arrest Adam if he didn't vacate the area immediately. That's what I imagine happened but there may be some stretching of my imagination. When we left at 9:30 there was still NO ONE there for the company picnic so what harm would it actually have caused for us to have been there? Oh well....that's why people reserve the area to keep hoodlums like Adam out of reserved area.

|The turn around is NOT the same as the big pole in front of the flour markings|

|Even though I didn't recognize her as part of our group and didn't have a bib on, I took her picture anyways. She smiled for her race picture but was just out for a regular run.|

Including the dog!
