On the tail end of MLK weekend, vowing to surpass 10K’ (a reasonable benchmark living in the shadow of the Blue Ridge), I started up Ida for the first of many reps this week. Turns out I was able to comfortably hit the benchmark as well as make up the difference from ln(12) thanks to the 4th annual running of the Sultan B-day 50K.
It may have been a rainy day for this fun run, but spirits were not dampened in the slightest. I have to give Mohammed and family mad props for keeping this crown-clad tradition not just alive, but thriving! Yet another memorable and surprisingly scenic traverse of the South Mountains was made by many a kindred soul. Thanks to all who helped out as well as those who came out to run! I certainly enjoyed spending some trail miles with my dad on the return. Happy Chinese New Year!
