How Are We Doing?

  • The PAX: Flo, Gump, Show + Tell, Bloomer, Duck (DR), Airbags (R), Yard Sale (R), Slash (R), Inside Out (R), McDreamy (R)

YHC showed up to Davis Park with a simple question- 5 months left in the year, how are we doing? Are we the men we should be? Have we hit the goals we set out to hit? Not knowing what to expect in terms of numbers, YHC came armed with a simple, yet effective run day Q. I am excited to say, it seems the run day is experiencing a bit of a resurgence. 11 total men posted, which is awesome. Flo mentioned yesterday that it had been a while since we went completely over the bridge, and YHC is nothing if not a crowd-pleaser, so we went completely over the bridge (and back) twice.

The Thang

– Mosey to the base of the 210 bridge (apparently there is paperwork now, that effective 7/4 it is my bridge).
– Mosey to the east side of the bridge, 25 LBCs.
– Mosey back to the west side of the bridge, 25 LBCs.
– Mosey again to the east side of the bridge, 25 LBCs.
– Mosey back to the west side of the bridge, 25 LBCs.

All in all, 4.25 miles for Yard Sale and Bloomer, roughly 4.66 miles for the bulk of us, and 5 miles for my man McDreamy.

Special Shout outs: Yard Sale for coming out and pushing himself despite a balky back. Bloomer who did great, all while saying he wasn’t a runner. Slash for hanging back and keeping Yard Sale moving and encouraged. McDreamy, who due to a miscommunication and lack of lights, thought there were PAX still on the bridge. He went back up to ensure no man left was left behind, and incidentally was left behind. Sorry about that brother, but you proved the type of HIM you are by going back up. I will do better next time.

Love you men. Amazing job by all.

Gravy out!
