Train hopping hobos


8 fleet footed men and a puppers hit the trails on this fine morning. Most of us ran 8 ish miles well paced by Pyro who made his second F3 posting this morning and in strong fashion brought a FNG – John Cassily, 51 (respect) who runs Fleet Feet on Patterson which earned him the name Foot Locker. Welcome Foot Locker (sorry ?)and we hope you come back.

Lab Rat was already out this morning and was disc golfing by the time the PAX made it back to the parking lot

Pyro suggested th start a little different this morning so we headed through Pump House Park and we’re hoping to cross the tracks but there was a coal train (headed east from hauling away mulenberg county) and we’re forced to run the tracks a bit. Sally didn’t like the trestle we had to cross one bit. Sally’s pretty smart. Offshore was lagging behind and took a wrong turn once back on the trails but as he encountered fresh spider webs he realized he was going the wrong way, we scooped him up a few minutes later and we’re off down the trails.

If you’ve never been to Foushees Mill near TX Beach you should go check it out. Looks like a good place to take the 2.0s

Pyro is a professional race pacer and he read us well. Paced us around 10:42 and we stuck together (pushing it) almost the whole way. Well done men.

Great having Gumbo out this morning. TYA was notably absent – out of character, hope all is well. I’m sure it is. Saab’s been absent all week, special assignment I hear. I’m sure these guys will be back soon.

Numberama, namerama, YHC took us out. Have a fantastic Sunday gentlemen.

Ghost Flag at Hoedown tomorrow. Let’s get that thing SOJ!!

  1. Great run guys. Perfect morning for it. Enjoyed my first time on the trails. I’ll be back for sure!

    Great to meet Pyro and Foot Locker (LOVE the name!).

    See you in the gloom!

  2. Enjoyed the new scenery despite that massive speeding train that nearly ran us over, let’s just go with that. 😉

    Foot Locker, solid name, fitting. Sports Authority could have been a good one as well.

  3. Sorry to miss y’all this morning, trying to have my cake and eat it too!

    Also, long winded stories are my jam! Look forward to hearing about it Wednesday.
