We started Loop Six with renewed determination 1:51 PM; Mile 90.5

We started Loop Six with renewed determination that we could finish, and also a rattling realization that it’s not over till it’s over

We still had 10 miles to go

It took awhile at the beginning of each loop to get our rhythm back

Focusing on form, Gerry sought every advantage - here walking on the firm grass instead of the soft sand
