17 track stars, including 1 FNG ACTUAL track star converged on the Carillon in this truly gloomy morning full of April Showers. Only the Q brought an umbrella….weird. Seeing that everybody was already wet, we might as well enjoy the morning and find ALL the puddles to run thru:
-COP in the field next to the police officer memorial
- 10 Richard Kimbles OYO
- Imperial Walker
- Saab’s iteration…arm circles and Don Quixote
Burpee Lake- 3 burpees at each light pole around the lake. Lunge up and down the hill for the six.
Orangutan- At Rusty Cage, start at the bottom and climb up the bars as far as you can. Repeat times 3. 20 jerkins OYO
Legs and abs Yoga- 10 minutes of some yoga concentrating on legs and abs. Yup.
4 minutes of Mary.
With so much extracurricular running going on pre-Dogpile these days, I decided to give everybody more of what they are craving….running. It’s a long ways to and from burpee lake, and all the way back to rusty cage. I was really surprised to see Breakfast Club show up with 15 minutes to spare before Dogpile start at 0600….with the deluge going on, I would have thought you would want to keep moving. I shared an umbrella with Emoji and Shakedown. Rosie wanted to sit in the truck, which I told him he is welcome to if he could produce a dry towel. He could not.
Once we got going, it became evident that Handshake was going to steal the show with his impressive 4th F game. He claims that it was from spaghetti, but I would venture there might have been low levels of rat poison involved as well.
Apology of the week goes to FNG Tadpole, for the attempted disclaimer. I did my best to get thru it but was CONSTANTLY interrupted. I pleaded my case at Elwood Thompson’s that mumblechatter should have been out of bounds during the disclaimer, but was told from MULTIPLE sources (read as: everybody at the table) that I got exactly what I deserved. And for that,
