Heard at mile 2, from the back of our small pack of runners: “Hey, don’t drop too far off the pace on this hill, guys.”
Heard thirty seconds later, as he passed: “I’m not sure what kind of pace you want to run, but I want to keep up these 7:20′s”.
Heard at mile 3: Four pairs of feet cruising past the guy.
Seen at the end of the run: No sign of Mr. Speedy Gonzales.
