Windy Solo Speed

  • When: 09/14/2018
  • QIC: Disaster
  • The PAX: Disaster

One brave soul dared to endure the high winds of the rapidly approaching Hurricane Florence this morning at Highlands Speed. @Pavarotti is on the shelf for a few weeks after a recent surgery so I will be taking the Q this month. After waiting until 5:40AM to verify that I was running solo this morning, I took a leisurely drive over to the track to face the wind head on. Aided by some trendy tunes from the late 1980’s I knocked out four laps before I finally surrendered to the weather. The back half of the track was easy but the front half was like running into a wall. After gazing sadly at my time and remembering when I used to run a sub-six minute mile back in high school I returned to the car for a lonely drive home.

Just a friendly reminder that F3 is held six days a week, rain or shine, except for Christmas. @Murdock has the Q tomorrow at Mallard Creek Community Park so come out and prove that you are man enough to show up, even in a hurricane. Once your electricity goes out you won’t have anything better to do anyway.

    I left you hanging this morning @Disaster. My bad!

      I think you were just scared to discuss the fantasy football beatdown that you’re going to face this weekend!

      • KleanUp

        I’m already resigned to a 0 win season. It’s not going to be pretty.

  2. Pavarotti

    Dang, sorry about that Disaster. I’ve had a few of those solo Speeds over the years. Thx for covering while I’m out. I’ll be back out there as soon as a can!

    • Disaster

      No worries. It was a really lousy day for running anyway with all the wind. Probably should have cancelled the beatdown and gotten a little more sleep.

    Can you share what trendy tunes you were listening to? Always looking to add to my playlist.
