MS –

As YHC and Honeymoon greeted BFG upon arrival, we were also greeted with the sounds of a minivan screaming through the parking lot and abruptly stopping.  At first Honeymoon wondered if it was DK with a new 4 legged critter to release, but very quickly he was sadly mistaken.  School is starting back up and apparently the custodian is back on the clock and not very happy about it.  We learned that he was headed to work, he had bills to pay and didn’t have time to mess with whatever we were doing in his parking lot.  The PAX wished him well and told him he was always welcome to work out with us if he would like, but it could be a tough EH, maybe we stick Wilson on him.  Anyway, once the morning laugh was taken care of, Gumbo strides into the AO  after a pre workout run to join the PAX to make it an odd 6, well eventually.  Honeymoon took off on his run as the remaining 4, yes 4 for now, took off to sweat in the humid morning.  MumbleChatter was great, always great to hear the PAX learning about other members, their past and current lives.  If you haven’t had a chance to run with Mr Roper, I encourage you, it will be well worth it if you can talk and run at the same time.  As the PAX mosey to the last stop on our route this morning, Gumbo yells out “Flipper, we are over here”!  As we look up in the gloom there is Flipper dripping with sweat and a smile on his face, “where the hell have you guys been”?  Being a few minutes late, Flip could not find the PAX for the first 40 mins this morning, but a huge shout out to him for running, stopping for exercises, and exploring until he did find us.  Great job Flipper!  If you need a tour of Twin Team, Flipper is your guy!  Strong work by all, BFG, Gumbo and Mr Roper all brought it this morning!  Honeymoon knocked out 5+ miles in his BRR prep, strong work!  Pleasure to lead this group!  See you in the Gloom!

  1. Well done Marmaduke – a great way to end the work-week and good times chatting with BFG this morning during the 11s — so good, in fact, that I forgot what number we were on for merkins and tried to substitute a 3-spot for the 9-er we were on…Gumbo was called back quickly for get those extra 6 in.

    Kudos to Flip-dog for tracking us down…eventually, but even more kudos for reaching the summit of Twin Team on his exploration — gotta tell you dude, that is the LAST place I will ever look for the PAX if I am on the hunt. Way get in the workout that you came for.

    Hope you guys have a great weekend and give ’em hell during SOJ takeover. Gumbo will be trying to log some miles and stay on pace for the monthly challenge will at the beach.

  2. You have to be pretty awesome to be LIFO and get so much Love on the BB. Let me start with , after the public shaming on the pod-cast about how disrespectful it is to show up late (point taken Swirly) I have been ready to go at 5:30 every workout since …not my often 5:33 … however this morning my mind and I got up and out of the house before the rest of me woke up and I u turned to take care of business… 5 minutes late now… the PAX was kind to point out there very own porta potty at Twin Team… I only spent about 5 minutes with the pax but Marmaduke had the CON and was leading like a beast. BTW that’s a big damn AO and that Hill is Stupid…

  3. Nice job Marmaduke! Sorry I missed it. I’ll be back tracking big data and miles starting on Sunday’s run. Great work men.
