Spring Lake

As Em and I were trotting through a lava field, somewhere just south of the water tanks that sit on the border of Spring Lake and Howarth Park, she confided, "I love it when we catch up with someone, and then get way ahead of them!"

A few minutes later, we heard approaching behind us the footfalls of the two teenage boys that we had just beat to checkpoint #8. They ran past us and off towards checkpoint #9.

"They are way too competitive," Em said.
