Thirteen gentlemen gathered flags and converged by the lake for a 9/11 themed version of Spider Run. A few regulars expressed their frustration on the bathroom doors being locked. Alas, instructions were given and off we went. Those that had flags carried them for the run.
Everyone proceed up by the golf course, right on fairway and proceed up Iris to Three Chopt. Right on Three Chopt and then left on Grove.
4s – Left on Granite, left on Patterson, left on St Christophers, right on the access road, left onto Campus then back to the start.
5s – Left on Roslyn which turns into Harlan, left on Patterson, left on St Christophers, right on the access road, left onto Campus then back to the start.
6s – Left on Bunting, left on Patterson, left on Honaker, right jog to Boatwright, left on campus, back to the start.
Numberama, namerama, wait for TYA then YHC took us out.
What a great morning for a run to reflect on what happened 17 years ago. The run was mostly quiet this morning which provided ample time for personal reflection on the sacrifices people have made to provide for the freedoms that we take for granted. Kudos to all that carried the flag today, either part way or for the entire route if your name is Swirly.
Bleeder got the message last night and opted out of flag carrying and wore his c. 1997 Britches American flag rugby shirt. Today was not a cool morning to wear a vintage rugby shirt. Love the energy though.
With the impending weather the latter half of the week, Shakedown suggested that we all use this group to support each other if someone is in need. Shakedown graciously offered up a place to store your meat. He indicated it was right beside his ammo store so don’t get any wild ideas.
If anyone needs a generator see Kubota.
Lots of CSAUP opportunities in the future. 9/22 Convergence, 9/29 Puppy Pile, 10/20 CSAUP, 12/2 Bear Creek 10 miler.
