Richard and I scoped out our running route for this Saturday's long run. We planned a point to point run from Huntsville or Madison to Decatur. It will be 50% on county roads and 50% trails and dirt roads. It's about 20 miles and Rich and I decided the check that the dirt roads take us all the way to the interstate bridge we need to cross to get to Decatur. We only ran for about 1 1/2 miles. At that point Richard realized that we parked his car directly in front of a locked gate, essentially blocking any through traffic. About one mile into our run, we came upon some farmers who were working the field and clearly would need to get through the gate to exit the area. It didn;t dawn on us until we had gone another 1/2 mile. At that point, we realized that we were basically keeping these guys from leaving and decided that we needed to "sprint" back to the car. 6 minutes and some side stitches later, we got back to the car to see that the farmers had managed to squeeze their truck past Richard's car. A nice pickup run for nothing, thanks Richard;-)
