Saturday was Mike Vieyra’s 7th annual Run Across Erie County. Originally planned as a 50K (30 miles), Mike rerouted to make it a 20-miler that started in Edinboro (at the Crawford County Line) and ran to Manchester Road in Fairview, not quite county to county, but close.
Mike Vieyra, Fred Beckwith, Karen Manganaro and Jan Comi did the hilly 20-mile course. Dan Cass ran ahead, got lost and did 25.8 miles before Mike Vieyra found him. When Mike heard Dan’s mileage, he said…”Well, get out…may as well go for the marathon distance!” Dan was having none of that. He was good it being not quite a marathon, but close.
Dan assures me that this is not how he felt Saturday.
