As Em and I were trotting through a lava field, somewhere just
south of the water tanks that sit on the border of Spring Lake and
Howarth Park, she confided, "I love it when we catch up with someone,
and then get way ahead of them!"
A few minutes later, we heard approaching behind us the
footfalls of the two teenage boys that we had just beat to
checkpoint #8. They ran past us and off
towards checkpoint #9.
"They are way too competitive," Em said.
