E was up early on Saturday morning for the 8 Tuff Miles run on St. John. A very tough race, starting at sea level there is a 1000 feet of elevation gain in the first 4 miles - a 4% grade. The remaining 4 miles are rolling and then steep downhill, back to sea level. A ton of runners, local and stateside. At the moment E is napping on the couch, sore legs, tired body, but very happy he finished. He did well despite his predictions but would like to be better prepared for next year. I think I'll also be running (walking) it next year, it seems like a race a runner should do while living down here.
