and a bell.
groundhog hour is every hour
and they dont want anything different to happen.
because nothing can happen in the first couple of days
unless it is something bad.
so you manage your effort on the run
you manage your food and drink
you manage your feet
there is a constant monitoring of everything…
because you dont want anything different to happen.
and now as we move on into the night
they are lying down every possible minute.
because in the backyard sleep is measured in minutes.
and every minute counts.
worse still, at bigs
the day loop is slow
which means those precious minutes come dear.
so the next 10 laps are huge.
if the runner cannot get in some naps before dawn
tomorrow will be a very long day.
