Classic Cruise Getting Faster

17 men posted for their weekly installment of long, slow-ish, distance.

The Thang:

  1. No Q, no problem.  201 Central loop is good for 4.9 miles.  Lead group had an 8:10 average pace.

The Naked Moleskin:

  1. It was an awesome site to turn around at the front of the hood to see how the group was staying together and to see nothing but heads and bodies packed in 2 x 2 in a line of 9 guys.  I was blown away as I thought back to the early days of the Cruise when we would have had a long, thin line.  This group is getting fit and fast.  Great to see.

    Great run this morning. Perfect temp for short sleeves. Little cool for shorts but doable. Enjoyed all the gear conversation re: how to handle the forecasted 28 degree temps for Thunder Road. Enjoyed the mocking of the swish-swish 100% nylon #NannyPants less.

  2. Stoli

    Stoli sounding off.

    And when swishy pants make their fashion comeback in 10 years, The Nanny will be ahead of the game! (I proudly own a pair from high school that I haven’t let go of).

  3. Colonel Mustard

    AYE! Thanks for taking the Q Nanny. Yes we did mock the swish-swish but we may need to have a gathering when they blow out to mark the end of life for a good pair of Nanny running pants.

    I would agree with you Nanny, this group has progressed in their running abilities.

  4. Google

    Google sounding off.

    Loved the strong finish. I was able to sneak up to Stoli and Col. Mustard and pass for a 1/2 step while they were discussing holiday plans! Nice to finally feel what clean air feels like….However, it did not last long when they decided to get kick in another gear and they were gone!

  5. Pavarotti

    Pavarotti present.

    That is all. Still catching my breath trying to keep up with the leading herd. Thx for the conversation Skipper.

  6. Chowder

    Chowder was present (though a bit late in arrival.) Also had Skipper, BOS, Bling, Treadstone, Filibuster, Gordo, LawDawg, Frodo (kind of), Gump (less kind of), Chavez, JLo, Glock (with a brand new pair of “low-end” kicks for #SoleRedemption that just-so-happened to match the model on YHC’s feet.) Good time this a.m. See you all next week for WIB week.
