I approached the Ridge Runner Ramble from Granville and hooked up with the group at the top of Stone Quarry. Here. Mark C, Steve O and Jeremy, who forgot to sprint to get into the frame, were rapidly cutting through the field.
Did not appear to be a huge turnout but here is SupeDave and in front of him Recumbent Dude. Also on the route were Kenda's Janet, Paul and Rick, Todd Mullens, Mitch T, Cindy, etc.. Probably only 5-8 people did the long route on this very humid morning. I took so many shortcuts I ended up with a paltry 40 miles but partly I had an obligation to meet family in Zanesville that afternoon and packing for my trip to Vegas/California and guess what.....I'm in Vegas right now. Vegas is not really my cup of tea although it is fun to get a group together and play blackjack but otherwise I always find Vegas depressing. I can only take seeing so many old, overweight blue hairs perched on stools pulling slot machine handles before it begins to get to me.
Oh, it was 106 degrees when I arrived but did not feel as crummy as when I left Ohio this morning at 78 degrees and 450% humidity.
