2 faithful posted for a morning trail run. Weather was rainy, dark and wet to begin and clear, sunny and wet to end.
Cross bridge to South Side of river. Take trail to service road along the trail. Run to and around Belle Isle. Back to the south side service road and across the river to the Pump house parking lot.
Lab Rat and YHC embraced the wetness this morning. Every puddle and patch of mud that we crossed was attacked with vigor. 5 minutes in, our shoes were soaked and legs were muddy. Lots of thoughts going out towards Offshore as he tackles his marathon today. Cannot wait to hear how it went.
Unseasonably warm weather this morning. I wore shorts and a tshirt and was plenty comfortable the whole way. Lab Rat had a heavy long sleeve shirt on for the first half of the run. As we were approaching Belle Isle, Lab Rat peeled off his shirt and went bare chested the rest of the run. Thankfully he tied the shirt around his waste covering the worst of his 40+ “six pack”. “Oh, the humanity”.
Met up with Toga’s brother in law at the end of the run. For some reason, I cannot for the life of me remember his first name. I have called him so many things at this point that I really don’t know.
BRR just around the corner…maybe not, but people are starting to commit. As I mentioned, I am shooting for two teams this year, a 12 and a 9 person team. Let me know if you are interested and I will pencil you in for a spot.
Great run, TYA. Thanks for letting me talk for an hour.
I recommend not running behind LabRat: 1) he doesn’t care if he gets wet and 2) he’s probably falling at some point.
Sorry to have missed you guys, but still proceeding cautiously as I rehab.
