Dawn. It is 5:15 am and it is still a bit dark. It is overcast. The air is a bit warm and sticky predicting a humid day ahead. Outline of the surrounding hills are getting easier to make out as it gets lighter. Headlamp glow is warmly shinning on the ground. The waterfall is providing a nice background noise among the chatter of eager runners getting ready to take off for the 37th running of the Laurel Highlands Ultra.
