Seventeen All-Americans emerged from their vehicles early to enjoy this morning’s pre-spring 59 degree treat. Shiplap even donned short sleeves today, you know it’s going to be a good day. Huddle up for directions which included heavy routes for all three charters:
- West around the lake and through the woods, being careful over the gravel path
- Left on College, Right on University
- Continue on University, crossing Westham and Ridge before turning left on Ralston
- Right on River, Right on E Glenbrooke Circle
- Left on W Glenbrooke Circle
- Everyone takes a right on Summit
- 4s traverse summit one time then return the way we came
- 5s traverse summit two times then take a right and complete the Glenbrooke Circle loop before returning via River
- 6s traverse summit three times, right on Glenbrooke, left on Hillaire, left on Shadow, right on Twin Lake, right on Twin Lake (again), then left on Glenbrook to complete the circle and return via River
Numbers, names, and YHC took us out.
A teaser was dropped on Slack yesterday that routes would be a little heavy, so be prepared. Routes were heavy, but maybe not to the degree disclosed. Either way, it was intended that we take a little longer today. YHC has gotten into a stale habit of running the same mileage on every run. Sometimes even adding half a mile makes me feel it that much more. Just trying to mix it up a little instead of 4s, 5s, and 6s every week.
EF Hutton made a point to call out how much his ass hurt after yesterday’s pounding at Hoedown. Gotta get those glutes activated on a regular basis.
Prayers today were not only for those around us but those living in extreme uncertainty in Eastern Europe. While it may seem half a world away, we should always try to do what we can to eliminate preventable casualties. That’s YHCs geopolitical statement of the day. God bless.
I believe my comment has been misappropriated for comical purposes. Well done. Solid route also.
Good route Splinter and we’ll said.
My condolences on EF Huttons ass and said-pounding.
