YHC arrived at 0505 to find Goob, Spinal Tap, Bing, and Airwolf deep in discussion in regards to Spinal Tap’s knowledge of astronomy and betting on the over/under of how many meteors we would see……

Defib was out earning some EC and report seeing 6 in about 30 minutes…..

Posh and Cornhole arrived around 0510

At 0513 YHC reviewed the plan for the day……complete a warmup mile together while heading towards the 1.25 mile loop on the backside of the fountain.  Loop was chosen because of how dark it normally is and to offer better viewing of potential meteors.  YHC saw 3 this morning.

After completing the warm up mile the PAX was asked to pick a pace per mile and maintain that pace for 2 miles, complete a recovery mile, run another mile at chosen pace, recovery pace on their way back to parking lot.

YHC asked those running skunk ape to run their goal marathon pace and asked those not running skunk ape to pick a pace that push them outside their comfort zone.

YHC, Cornhole, Posh, Bing, and Airwolf chose 9 minutes per mile while Goob, DeFib and Spinal Tap were around 7 minutes per mile and lower.

The mumblechatter was strong this morning at the Fort……a nice reminder of what makes the Fort a great AO on Thursday mornings.

Everyone ran at least 5 miles this morning and a few ran more than 6.
