Marv did a great job taking us out today.

The pax quickly broke into their groups – 6 milers, faster 5 milers, and the rest of the pack.  The 5 mile Pax was pretty quiet for the first two miles.  Not much was said until Labrat came from the six and caught up.  Waiting for the GPS to synch never pays off.

Conversation unfolded about Labrat’s weekend vacation plans.  Mention of the upcoming Tesla show at the National lulled the Pax into a reminiscent discussion of days of the youth….surfing, Slayer; and the hobbies of today….fishing and golf.

Rounding the corner back on Grove, Swirly dropped the hammer and set the clip into the finish.  Well done Swirly!

It should be noted that early in the run, the 6 milers and fast 5s took a wrong turn off of Henri onto Henri and not St Chris.  Saab said that they covered the same distance, even though they cut the turn around shorter.  Good thing Saab doesn’t have a profession in accounting.

It was also interesting to hear multitude of pronunciations for “Henri”….from deep Southern to French accents.

Lockjaw has Q tomorrow at Dogpile.  The Sunday trail run will be led for the first to arrive.

  1. For the record, according to GMAPS, despite our wrong turns, Sippy, Marv, and I came in at “6.1”. As BT would say, more than enough given it was performed correctly.
