7.5 miles in the gully. Hot - 90 degrees at 3:30.
Ran a little ways with Abby after I busted her walking. Had to spend some time gently explaining to her how little actual improvement occurs when you are walking.
Yeah, well, he was an Olympian so I might have to reassess.
Paavo Nurmi (Flying Finn) was known to go on 3-6 hour walks regularly. Olympian as well.
I'm going to have to agree w/ Rob that running is better strategy for cross country, though :-)
She's got a career in ultras.
