With so many great routes this year, something new would be the absence of a route. Besides, with so many running races, this was indeed a time time for taper.
The instructions were simple. Find a partner based on speed, distance, or interests and be back in 45 minutes. Everyone happened to set out eastbound on Grove and diffused from there. Some chose traditional routes while mine was based on running until I felt like making a turn and then running until I felt the need for another turn and so on.
We did a BOM ring of fire with each Pax stating one thing they are thankful for. We are blessed.
Good luck to the racers this weekend. Regardless of distance, go forward and conquer. You trained for it, now enjoy the reward.
Time To Taper,
