I made it to The Gettysburg Battle Field today for the third time in my life. This time was special because I was on my own. Just me and my shoes at sunset. Even though time was short, I managed to cover about 5 miles of historic battle fields fairly quickly. It was chilly but my legs felt good. Even though today was supposed to be an easy pre-race day, I couldn't help myself. Knowing that these rolling hills were once the place where America was made spurred me on. I had to continuously hold myself back. Today was a great day. Thank you Vermont for giving us your sons who fought and died to make this a better place!
