Merkins and Miles and a Pit Stop


3 Southside regulars eschewed the cold and rain and posted to River Run to start their week.  YHC had a little something different planned.  We moseyed half a mile to the track and YHC alerted the PAX of the plan – 25 merkins – run a lap…repeat AMRAP…..Audible after 200 merkins and 2 miles as YHC needed to find one of those lovely green small buildings and make a deposit.

With one located in the parking lot, DK and Rosie ran laps around the parking lot while YHC stopped by the office.

Regroup and finish with about a mile run down to the river and back to the flag – a few minutes overtime for good measure.

Number-rama, name-a-rama and Circle (Triangle) of Trust with YHC taking us out.

Today marks the five-year anniversary of YHC’s father’s passing.  Hard to believe it has been that long.  YHC hasn’t posted to a River Run in a while but I felt like I need to today, so I signed up on the Q sheet.  It was great to run with DK and Rosie, as always.  And, good to get some merkins in for the monthly challenge.  Something tells me they will be on the menu tomorrow also!

Have a great day men!

No more Gumbo for you!  Til tomorrow.

    Props to your pops, Gumbo. You’re a good man.

  2. Phil was a good man, he is missed, those 5 years have gone by fast. Thanks for leading and helping me get the merkins in early.

  3. Great job Gumbo!

    Your pops was a great man and you are honoring his legacy well.

    Also, good job avoiding dropping a fudd at the swamp.
