15 faithful and one FRNG (Friday Run New Guy) posted on a crisp January morning to exercise their body and minds. Weather was perfect for a run 24 degrees, 5mph wind and clear. Could certainly feel the upcoming snow in the air. Snowmeggedon we are ready for you.
Right onto Grove, follow Grove to the Boulevard and turn around. 4 mile loop, turn around at Wisteria, 5 mile loop turn around at Tuckahoe, 6 mile loop all the way to Three Chopt Road. All meet back at the shovel flag.
Several of the five milers took a loop around the quarter mile lap complaining that the five mile loop was not quite 5 miles. YHC was pretty confident that his route was accurate having scouted it several times and relying on his previous experience. I was so convinced that on my way to the office this morning I drove the route in the #hybrid so that I could gloat on the back blast that I was indeed correct and the the loop was a true 5 miles. Well……. Let’s just say that the route was a bit shy of the 5 mile advertised distance. Apologies to the group, I will remeasure for accurate distance next time.
Rosie made it out the the Friday run for the first time. He is thinking about committing to the BRR and wanted to see where his running legs where given a previous injury. All went well today and I am hoping that he can do the BRR with the team. He would be a great addition. Splinter posted for the first time in my memory for a Friday run. He claimed he was there to train for the BRR, might be a bit early, but better early than late. Weird not to see Sippy and Bleeder out there on a Friday morning.
Couple of late comers this morning. Loose Goose called me at 515 for a preview of the route this morning because he was running a few minutes behind. He got to the start right as we were leaving. Cirlce K appeared on the route about 10 minutes or so into the run. He made a lucky guess and hit grove toward boulevard and found the crew.
Workout tomorrow at GridIron and Dogpile. Playing in the snow in as a middle aged man is as fun as when you were a kid. Post, have some fun out there in the snow. Sippy says to bring snow shovels for the workout at DogPile.
Splinter to tweet out the instructions for F3 cancellation/announcements regarding snow closings etc. Look for that in the next few hours.
BRR team is filling up. Grab a spot now. It is a blast and attainable for anyone who does F3 on a regular basis. Prior to last year Swirly had never done a 10k and slayed his three legs at the BRR last year. Remember, F3 Corporate is counting on you!!!
