A Star Studded Cruise

November 29, 2018 |

YHC picked the coldest day of the year so far (25°) to lead 7 other Pax into the gloom. The cruise launched from Tradition and went like this:

Right on Prosperity. Left on Fairlea. Onto the greenway. Right on Saxonbury. Left on Mallard Grove. Left on David Cox. Left into the apartment complex and onto a greenway access rarely used by the Pax. Left once we reached the main greenway, up Armitage and back to Tradition.

YHC is slowly getting over a fear of the cold. Once you get moving, you don’t even notice the cold so I challenge you to skip the fartsack and join us this winter. Layer up and come work out. On the really crisp, clear mornings you even get to enjoy the stars. Ask Trail Mix. Read More
