Conquering Mt. Afton
8 PAX gathered at Dorton Park to see what YHC had in store. Unfortunately for the PAX, YHC had an idea of what he wanted to do but not a real set plan. The idea was to get more cardio and introduce the PAX to Mt. Afton (which the Monday Cruise runners are very familiar with). Mt. Afton a gradual incline hill which gets steeper at the peak and has a beautiful asphalt parking lot at the top. The idea was set…the rest was on the fly. Read all about it:

Climbing Mt. Afton:
Partner up at the bottom. Partner 1 runs up the hill while partner 2 bear crawls to the top. Partner 1 runs back to Partner 2 and then switch. Continued switching until both partners reach the top of hill.
At the Peak:
The peak has a perfect parking lot. The PAX each took a parking line. Person 1st would do an exercise and when finished would run to the next available parking line. The others who were waiting their turn did a “Burn” exercise to pass the time. Repeato until the entire group finished at entire designated parking area.
