Mile 204-215 Tornado Disaster

We had to change our plans a little bit because part of the Trace is being closed for cleanup due to the largest tornado outbreak in US history.

So after running the first leg of the Trace, we got up the next morning and drove up to mile 204 before they close it until late fall. That being the case, we got a later start than we would have wanted so this ended up being one of the hottest runs I have ever done!

That combined with the relentless sun (no trees for shade, as they were all demolished during the storm) made for an excruciating 11 mile run.
