After a two hour respite, Van 2 is back in action. Van 1 padded our predicted time by another 5 minutes (on the strength of Tom's speedy 6.9 mile leg), putting us 30 minutes ahead of our goal. Grant started us out big time and Eddie 'the Big Cat' Higgins is attacking the hills in Fishkill. Is there anything more tortuous than pulling up to a Dunkin Donuts for some joe, only to find it closed? Perhaps. We did have college kids in New Paltz offering us free beer in exchange for running tips.
