Old Glory Pt. 2

Five of the faithful posted at SOT on a bitterly cold, windy morning. Johnsonville (YHC) brought out the SF, and the workout went something like this:

ANNOUNCEMENT —

Murph Monday at RiveRun on 2/27

MOLESKIN —

Old Glory had been done at SOT last week. YHC was not able to think of a good reason not to repeat. We did slightly alter the mode of running laps before and after. YHC threatened to do it again next week, but Rosie slipped his name onto the singup sheet.

Seeing us run laps single-file with a flag-carrier, the bus drivers must have taken us for a pack of lunatics (rightfully).

The icy wind was whipping from every direction. Occasionally we were shielded by the school. Most times, we faced a brisk headwind. I don’t recall feeling a tailwind anywhere.

Rosie appeared in shorts and a thin shirt for one of the bitterest mornings of record, sporting tanned legs from his recent trip to the Dominican Republic. He was the chief lunatic.

Great job pushing yourself out the door this morning and pushing through successive Old Glory!

  1. Definitely a headwind no matter which way we were running and I think it was uphill all the way around the school too…or at least it felt like it.

    Every day is a good day for an Old Glory. It never gets old and it never disappoints. Good call J-ville.

    Way to push through the elements guys!

  2. Great to be back and be broken in by Old Glory, I’ll wear the chief lunatic banner proudly. Had to show off the tan and working against the wind all morning helped work off some of the Presidente beer consumed over the week.
    I think I saw the bus driver laughing at me as I passed.

  3. Uphill and into the wind………..yup that was this am. I feel better now that my feet & hands have thawed! I like the running part of this Old GLory. It was my only opportunity to carry the flag during an Old Glory! Nice work fellas! #FEBA

  4. Nice job men! Sorry to miss this AM. I had an alarm malfunction. Old glory sounds like a good remedy for a cold windy morning.

    Til next time.
