Full Monty


Four trail run regulars showed up on what turned out to be a stunning morning for a long run:

Out North Bank, cross over Belle Isle around the downstream side, over to Buttermilk then up Forest Hill (clockwise, of course).  Home on Nickle Bridge by way of second half of Buttermilk.  Offshore and Saab got in some extra mileage on the lake loop.  GPS clicked 10.0 miles upon passing the flags at the toll booth.

Quick prayer and off to church/rehydrate.


Not much to report, but a solid run was logged.  TYA and YHC are doing the half marathon trail run on 5/22, so we decided to up the mileage a bit.  Shorter routes were at the ready, but no takers this morning.

Saab sent us off with homework:  Watch “The Barkley Marathons” on Netflix, come ready to discuss.  Lab Rat and M completed task.  Good call…Lab Rat loved it, M called it “a train wreck she couldnt stop watching”.

Catch you on the flippity flop,

Lab Rat

  1. THE Yankee Aggressor on

    Thanks for the run gents. Perfect day for it!

    Barkleys documentary was awesome. Watched it twice. So quotable “the race starts when I light my cigarette”. I describe it as a combination of watching moonshiners and the iron man triathlon at the same time.

  2. It was a good day with you all. Enjoyed the extra miles.

    Yes, the Barkley should be required-viewing for all F3 BRR participants…a subtle reminder on how “easy” we have it.
