At 0514 it was evident that today at the Fort would be a runners only AO.  Many wondered where all the Ruckers were at?  Was the bridge too much for them? Was the pre-determined well marked .8 mile loop too far for them? Was it that they didn’t want to smell the reclaimed water on their route?  Whatever the reason or reasons….we missed you at the Fort today.

The run began exactly at 0515 with a quick review of the route and an agreement to return to the parking lot at 0605 for COT.

After a 1 mile group warmup the PAX broke off into separate groups and were able to run between 5.4 and 6.38 miles in the gloom.

Some of the PAX worked on speed work by running .5 on with a .25 mile recovery others worked on maintaining a consistent pace and Brutus worked on learning the loop and familiarizing himself with Fort Hamer Thursday’s……he was overheard saying maybe I’ll comeback next week.
