    @ManDown – great push on the opening run this morning – I never would have kept that pace without you!

    @grizzly – 7.20 pace on that first mile! Let’s get sub 7 next month!

    Big thanks to the cadence group! Made it slightly easier 😉

      @Grizzly & @Dingo – Nice job on the run! Sorry I was late or I could’ve run with you, I may not have been to Tradition lately but I haven’t lost any speed.

        Yeah! You were flying down Prosperity! I could pick that gait of yours out a mile away!!

    Sound wave was there! Great Murphing with you guys this morning. I agree the counting must’ve been off or our group was too slow with the reps. Enjoyed the 2nd F with @Pharaoh, @Soundwave…and I guess it was ok with @Coyote.

    @Dingo- Put me down. I was with in?famous 2nd group. We didn’t socialize quite as much as 1st group did, maybe that was it. Oh, & we finished strong….#nofade!

    Great working out with you guys this morning, it was nice to be back at Tradition after a long hiatus. Contrary to popular belief I’m not an FNG, between Davis Lake, vacation and a new job I’ll admit it’s been a while since I’ve been there. After the mumble chatter I’m reconsidering that decision…

      I like how you briefly silenced the mumblechatter when you said, “I ran a sub 7 mile.”

      @Chicken Strip – I was just busting your chops since i hadn’t seen you in a while. Good to see you out at Tradition this morning. Also it sounds like @Dingo and I need to be chasing you to get that sub 7 mile.

        Ya, I realized later it had been a while, I missed the last murph which was the last time I was at Tradition so 2 months!

        And I wasn’t the fastest out there: *looks at* @Mr. Belding, @Mand Down, @Pharaoh. Those guys were flying, Belding almost caught me on the last mile and I had a couple minute headstart (I was part of the infamous 2nd group of suspect rep counters)

          HEY!!!!! GG and I beat mr Belding on the first Mile!!

          GG – that means we were really flying!!! 😉

        2. Coyote

          No you guys counted fine! It was WHAT you were counting and what constituted a “rep” that was suspect!

    Looks like a good turnout this morning. I was stuck at home doing a KB workout. I always enjoy the murph too. However, it looks like I would have gotten whipped on the running, so I’m glad I didn’t show.

    Somewhere out there @Urlacher is reading this backblast and thinking, “7:20 mile is not THAT fast.” And @Chicken Strip probably showed up late because he wanted to finish the mile around the same time as the rest of us.
