The run is certainly in transition these days. A third of the PAX opted for the 6 mile loop (Saab, Marv, Copernicus and Offshore). They were cranking this morning. Easily making the 6 mile loop in the 45 minutes. The rest headed out on the 5 mile loop. Swirly was on fire this morning leading the PAX. Abacus, BT and Fudd were right behind him tracking him down (not sure if anyone caught him). A little further back were Lab Rat and Tramp Stamp. Both TYA and Wilson were trying to hang on with Lab Rat and Tramp Stamp. The scream, on his first day back opted for the four mile loop and performed well. We are certainly a much faster and fitter group of runners from where we started. Having said all that, any level of runner is welcomed and encouraged to join. Our first run was a 3.6 mile loop that we could barely make in 45 minutes. Great work and growth folks.
Lot of mumble chatter on attire today. YHC donned, for the second time, his blue shorts. When The scream arrived, he quickly asked me “Going for a swim today”. BT pointed out that the shorts extended almost past my knees (didnt know that was an issue). Lab Rat’s outfit was, lets just say inappropriate. When I was passing some tomatoes on the run today, I heard them comment on Lab Rat with the backblast title. I could not disagree with them. My whole run I was trying to divert my eyes from Lab Rat’s attire, or lack there of. As Fudd so eloquently stated “you wear clothes in respect of the other runners”.
Lots of second F for the PAX today. Several of the group hung out in the parking lot past 7 am. More than a few of the PAX were planning on a day off or half day off today.
Enjoy your weekends gents. See you in the Gloom.
