9 gents arrived to take a running route from a negligent Q. The route included a long climb up Horsepen and then a run around the perimeter of Bandy field on an extremely dark and foggy morning. Suffice to say, it was ill-advised and no one could see or find the proper path…picture every pax member going in different directions. CSAUP this weekend. See TYA for details. Saab abides

Cooler weather prevailed today. Pre-run talks of F3 camaraderie and what it means to be a part of this group and taking care of each other. Swirly needs a bike too. Off we went hitting three local AOs. It was dark, somewhat hilly, but it felt like Fall. It was great running with Upchuck – pushing the pace and conversation. I liked your theory on the early morning Volvo rendezvous better than our other Ziontown runner’s more factual statement. Great to see everyone again, despite no longer having my pet raccoon in tow. Marv took us out.

8 men got after it this morning at Spider run. Run through the bat cave, over the river, take riverside east. Turn around at 23 and make it back by 45. NMM Little sticky for the run today. It was raining a little bit, but not enough to call you off. Saab and Faceplant took the six mile route. The rest of the PAX did between 4.5 and 5.5. TYA Out

A fearsome fourteen descended upon Spider Run not expecting the unexpected. They say, keep your friends close but enemies closer. Same goes for intervals – which YHC despises. Yet they are a necessary evil. Route: PAX stays together and conducts several climbs up various hills surrounding UR…1 minute up then mosey back down. The PAX climbed more hills this morning than most conventional runners do in a week. Saab Abides
