3 rested and ready posted on a Sunday morning for some fun on the trails.
We went buttermilk to northbank this morning, crossing back over on the T. Pottersfield bridge.
Vinny is a beast. Today was his first posting at the Sunday trail run for a 7 mile jaunt and he slayed it. I am not sure what Vinny’s longest previous recent run was, but this was further than he has gone in a little bit. He was rock steady the whole way, just punching in the miles, staying steady and moving forward the whole time. I love when existing F3 guys come out to the Sunday run and punch in 7 miles when they haven’t done that in a while. The best part is that in a months of so, they are keeping up with the PAX and have no problem with the trails. It is impressive….Go Vinny!!
Speaking of Vinny, he made us do 7 merkins in cadence following the run today in honor of his seven on the trails. There was already a group of women looking at us curiously because they thought I had just got back from a swim (no kidding, they asked me), the merkins only added to us as an oddity.
Great to run with Shakedown this morning. He slowed his pace to accommodate both Vinny and I. Despite the heat, the trails were a pleasure this morning. It seems that every man in Richmond (except the 3 of us) took care of the family this morning. This left the moms open to hit the trails. And hit the trails they did. There were a lot of folks on the trails and most were female. As Vinny or Shake accurately assessed, most of the women that run on trails are in pretty good shape.
