Yes I know it is cliché, but on this day in history (’75) Springsteen had his first pop hit with “Born to Run.” How fitting given the 7 devoted who showed up at UR for today’s Spider Run. Chosen route was the River Run (take TYA bat cave, cross the bridge, take Riverside Drive to Cherokee and then back).
YHC was pleased to be back in groove of posting a weekday run. Whether due to the weekend trail run, or just a protracted recovery, YHC was a little stiff near the end of the run but enjoyed the cool weather and conversation nevertheless. On the way back, several PAX avoided the bat cave and chose the entrance to UR for their return – in the interest of keeping their feed dry or at least not getting them any wetter due to standing water along the path.
YHC found the pre-and-post run chat quite educational: While it may take a village to save a pair of skunk-laden running shoes, you can come out ahead with two pair; Cucumber wipes are the swiss-army-knife of personal hygiene; Relieving oneself on someone else’s front yard is moderately acceptable, but on one’s own front yard?…not so much.
See you in the gloom guys
