A cool ten rose to claim victory over the Devil’s Pitchfork. 4,5, and 6 mile options were taken with modification.
Dutch took us out.
YHC wasn’t as prepared today as hoped. New prototype route still on the drawing board, woke before 4am thinking I had slept through the run, and left my watch at home. All small challenges considering the big picture. Today we did modified routes of the Devil’s Pitchfork which is a great set of hill workouts. It was extremely dark out there even with the headlights. TYA even began running up someone’s driveway taking it for his turn.
Pax continue to impress. Saab had his speed today and Lugnut finished strong.
The cafeteria team at the Commons was cranking out the early morning bacon. A fragrance so strong and powerful, it represented goodness and all the possibilities of the coming day.
Also of note, Saab’s watch is accurate but a day ahead. Is this some training strategy of the elite runners? Perhaps a means to never show up a day late? Wishful thinking for the upcoming weekend? Or perhaps just neglect of one’s timepiece?
Sippy Cup demonstrates another elite runner secret by jogging backwards after his run. It reminds me of Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Sippy, I don’t think it will take those miles off your legs like they attempted on the Ferarri in the movie.
