Good choice, going with the middle group! It may be tough at times, but will make you faster and stronger :)
Oh, no, we didn't know that you wanted the middle group and we only counted 7 people! Hm, we better get better at this! I'm glad we connected again. Another thing that will be a valuable improvement is if one person in each group carries a light first aid kit. I volunteer to be one of them since I almost always carry my running pack. We could have used a butterfly band-aid last night for sure.
Yeah, first aid kit definitely a good idea. It seemed this lady had a pretty big gash, as the blood soaked through her hat.
