7 men chose not to succumb to the fartsack this morning and showed up for a run in the cold rain. This is what transpired…
Ran the carillon route, 6 and 5 mile options in reverse direction from what Lockjaw first introduced. Others ran and out and back along Grove for a 3-4 mile run.
There was a bit of irony in trying to avoid the puddles as we exited MM. By the time we all were at the half-mile mark we were all pretty well saturated from head to toe. YHC was working to keep up with Sippy for the first mile, where he clocked us at a sub-7 minute pace. Sippy in-turn stated he was working to keep up with me, so at that point we dialed it back a bit.
On our return trip we saw Circle K and TYA, but Swirly disappeared. It was only until later we discovered he charted his own route. Still not certain if he got lost or it was his preference to return through Windsor Farms, but kudos to him for getting more distance in.
When we returned, it was fun standing in the rain shouting instructions to Lugnut on how to jump a car battery. We had to “shout” of course because none of us were going to stand close enough to provide any physical assistance nor endanger ourselves.
