Weather- 61 and lovely
YHC rolled up around 4:50 and noticed two unoccupied vehicles and 1 occupied sheriff deputy vehicle. Two things were possible- two PAX were out running already OR they were detained in the back of the sheriff’s car. YHC shrugged his shoulders and went for his own pre-run of the bridge under the moon. Luckily, about 3/4 of mile into the bridge, YHC saw Defib and Spinal Tap approaching- no arrests today. Upon returning to the parking lot at approximately 5:10am, their were a healthy 12 people in attendance with one FNG! Bluegrass rolled in shortly thereafter and at 5:13:45, Fireball rolled in on 2 wheels- impressive in a Mini Cooper.
At 5:15, the 5 core principles were stated properly thanks in part to the FNG and the gloom’s path unveiled. The prescription today was 1 Figure 8 loop, run out of the neighborhood, 1 full bridge repeat to the end of the sidewalk and back, and if time allowed, 1 small loop back inside the neighborhood. 3 ruckers were in attendance and rucked the bridge.
Speeds varied and 2 swift PAX (Blade Runner and Pincher) completed the small loop portion. Everyone else completed the 5.25 mile path. About 1 mile into the figure 8, Bluegrass said he knew it was serious when the shirts came off. “Shirts off runners are serious runners.” The ruckers completed a full bridge repeat. Fitness and fellowship were had in droves.
We had an FNG, Justin, who is a NP at SMH and played many recreational sports growing up. The name could’ve gone either direction but in the end (see what I did there), his high school football position was the winner. Welcome Tight End.

It’s always fun boys. Goob. Out.
