Seven ambitious but realistic men posted in Rutland for yet another hot and humid morning run. Three routes were given. All would opt for the shorter distance or even modify that for less distance. The Route Rutland to Giles. Do the back loop into Craney Island. Run down and up the hill. Exit neighborhood onto Atlee Station. Instead of the longer Bojangles loop, run back to AO. Should have been 4.7 miles but with Craney Island mistake, was likely closer to 5. Others probably went 4 miles. COT – Numberarama, Name-O-Rama, Announcements, Hash took us out. NMS Great to have…

Mr. Holland is getting back into running shape after his shoulder surgery and being cleared to start running again. YHC starts off with the mumble chatter calling out Tim and G and my 2.0 asks, ‘what happened to our F3 names?’ he was correct and we then fell back into running form. For this run,…
