Check-in 1/3 of the way through
Boarded a school bus shuttle & hung out in chilly, rainy conditions (reminiscent of NW forests & not the high Sierras) at the Robinson Flat aid station at Mile 29.1. Suffered as spectating crew members, shivering & feeling for the runners who came through soaked & a bit miserable-looking. Mike actually looked great & didn't need anything from us besides some encouraging words. A bit behind schedule after stopping to help out fellow runner Kami Semick, who was suffering from a severe asthma attack on the trail. We felt happy to leave the cold misty forest & are playing the waiting game in Foresthill (Mile 62), ready to send Alex off on his pacing duties in a few hours. Sunshine & warmer temps are promising signs...
