Is it Raining?


Four soldiers posted for a Wednesday afternoon run on Hillcrest, including one Wednesday run FNG (EF Hutton).

The Thang:

Mayhem ensued.  Circle K ran three small circles then a loop to Mary Mumford and back, Swirly did 9 small loops, and EF and TYA did 3 large and 1 small loop.


The story of the day was the weather.  An hour prior to the workout, a storm rolled in and the temperature dropped from the mid 90’s to the high 70’s.  Rain held off for a majority of Circle K’s jaunt, but the rain was in full force for the run for all others.  The PAX really enjoyed the weather as it kept things cool for the whole run.  A short reprieve in the rain threatened the PAX, but it came back and keep all happy.  Post workout, we hung out at the top of Hillcrest in the pouring rain and got a bunch of strange looks from the passersby.  Honestly, it was as pleasure to hang out in the rain afterwards.  I felt like a little kid again, standing in the rain and splashing in the puddles.  Just one other benefit from working out in all weather…

Circle K took the back roads for the trip to Mary Mumford.  On the way back he opted for Cary Street.   Cary Street Road (WTF RVA) is fine until most of the way until you hit a section which is street or deep woods…Circle K survived, but learned his lesson and will never again try the Cary option back to the flag.

BRR is less than three months away…time to hit the hills gents.
