11 pax posted for a Cruise that is not preparing anyone for anything other than life. Thunder Road is over. HC 5K is months away. Mud Run is months away. We are in maintenance mode – that place where you run in order to maintain some semblance of the hard earned fitness from the last few months of CSAUP. Life is a series of seasons; ups, downs, valleys, and mountaintops. Be where you are. It is preparing you for the next season.
- 4.9 mi 201 Central Loop.
The Naked Moleskin:
- Forecast called for 47ish degrees. Actual temp was 44. Perfect shorts, short sleeves, hat, and gloves running weather. Able to run and barely sweat. Opposite of summer.
- T-claps to Frodo for hanging back for a bit with an ailing BOS.
- T-claps to Bootstrap for hanging back with his FNG. Walking side by side with a brother who is just beginning a running journey is a noble thing to do.
- Watch said we did 8:53 miles. Enjoyed the 6:50 pace for the last .25 mile w/ J-Lo taking the checkered flag.
