15 by foot and 1 by wheel descended upon the AO ready to roll. YHC used a new tactic to lay the route; a map. We did the Setauket route today in the 4 and 5 mile variations. 6 milers were all sunning themselves on a beach, college tour, or whereabouts unknown.
Today’s pace was at a quick clip today. I think Flatline and Spit were pushing the first pack and setting the tone for the rest of the 5s. No one got permanently lost today and all returned to the AO. YHC did see some take a slide down the hill as we cut through the tree line to Dover. Note to all, there is a mulched path at the turn.
Wilton House seems to be doing well, through there is a construction site next door. An empty lot where a house once stood? What will they build? Pax speculation includes a Wawa or Dollar General. I have my money on the Waffle House.
Labrat should be renamed the “Spy Hunter” after the video game from our youth. I don’t know about any machine guns out front, but the oil slick and smokescreen combo produced by his flatulence left many gagging 30 feet back. A couple weeks ago, EF Hutton got poked in the eye by a stick on the Grayson Allen route. This week he choked down a direct hit of Labrat’s finest crushing his olfactory senses. Perhaps we will plan on damaging the rest of his senses on future runs?
Labrat, somewhere out there Keymaster, Wilson, and Fudd are filled with a sense of deep pride.
Flatline took us out.
CSAUP is upon us. One week and game time.
Time to Taper (when is it not?),
