17 strong showed up for some running and biking through our fine city’s streets.  There was a chill in the air.  If only there was an app to predict the weather….

The routes – Carillon routes backwards (Nollirac) in 4, 5, and 6 mile distances.

A Pax favorite in a forward route, this reverse routing satisfied all.  6 milers found the need to commit to 6 early on which was a new dynamic.  There was academic debate among the Pax to determine which route was hillier.  Personally, I think the reverse route was hillier.

One thing for certain, the reverse route brings 4, 5, and 6 milers together for the last 4/10ths of a mile of everyone’s routes which is great for camaraderie.

It was good to see Ricky Bobby out after some time off.  Double Bags did a great job committing to today’s run and covering those miles.  Well Done!

TueKan disappeared somewhere en route.  The Pax speculated that he had been “swiped to the right”.  Speaking of disappearances, the 6 milers were met by a voice out of the shadows of the Carillon suggesting their pace today was sub-par.  Was it their inner voice speaking or a concerned citizen?  Sounds like a conspiracy.

Announcements:

-Marv can predict the weather with some degree of accuracy.

-February HDHH February 15 – Unless TYA is selling a house, I will Q this one.

-Saab Q tomorrow – This has been advertised as a strict kettle bell workout without any self-deprecating humor.

Share.

  1. Excellent route this morning! No secret that Lab Rat is a huge fan of this route, but backwards was even better. Making the 6 milers “catch me if you can” (they did) was the cherry on top! Maybe get some speed work in and finish with them the next time.

    Good to catch up with Rosie and Honeymoon this morning, two excellent running partners.

    TClaps to Double Bag, he was definitely out of his comfort zone, but committed to the finish.

  2. Nice reversal LJ. I started out hating it, but then as Sippy pointed out, it gave us (6 milers) a challenge to catch up with the other runners. Marv’s closeout was great – particularly his subtle response to those who have chided him about his pricey weather app.
