The rain held off just enough for 23 Weather Men and 1 Canine to pound the pavement and start the Christmas Season weekend off with a stellar beginning. Usually the Q initiates go time at 0530 but the PAX was eager to move so off the PAX went at 05:29:40 secs. Prior to the early start, YHC awaited the question from the PAX as to “Who has the Q?” or “Where are we running?” But Saab looks at YHC, “Well, Flatline are we to guess?” The Route=out and back:
Commonwealth to Monument. Monument to Shephard and back=4 miles. Monument to Strawberry St and back=5 miles. Monument down to General Lee, circle, and back=6 miles. A few PAX members were rucking and a few walking. Lug, slightly tardy, did what he needed to do! And Sippy Cup-lone gear man this am!
Number-ama, Name-r-ama, Announcements: Shakedown found 2015 RTD article on F3 and complimented all PAX members in the article are still posting. NO DOUBT!! Fudd stated the obvious, it’s raining. YHC took the clue…
YHC took us out!
NMS: Evidently Swirly missed the weather report for this morning and arrived with a long sleeve shirt on to run. That shirt did not stand a chance!! The sun was not out, but those guns were!!
BT, Shakedown, Handshake, Pullout-that first mile, boy, we took off! Little faster than YHC wanted but it worked. Shakedown, YHC always love the early morning cadence with you!!
Vinny-congrats on your in-laws celebrating 50 yr anniversary, as well as your parents. That bar is set high!! Vinny will actually miss a work out tomorrow morning!
Handshake, respect the posting considering your fluid intake last night! Respect!
Gentlemen, much respect to all this morning for our jog down Monument! Only those who post understand. Continue to inspire and drive the power of hope! Merry Christmas and Blessings to the entire PAX. Loud and Proud.
