  • The PAX: McDreamy (Respect), Sofa (Happy Birthday!), Outhouse, Dollar Bill, Mayday (Respect), Bloomer

7 Pax descended upon the Badlands on a perfect morning for a mosey. The slack teaser was simple “River Run Training- I bet you can’t guess what that means”. Disclaimer was given, some light stretching was done, and we were off.

Mosey to the base of the 210 bridge. Quick halt to receive the plan:

– Mosey to the east side of the bridge, 25 LBCs
– Mosey back to the west side of the bridge, 25 LBCs
– Mosey back to the east side of the bridge, 25 LBCs
– Mosey back to the west side of the bridge, 25 LBCs
– Mosey back to the flag.

Total miles: 4.7 at a blistering 9:28 pace (mile 1- 9:28, mile 2- 9:25, mile 3- 9:00!, mile 4- 9:46).

A couple notes- overall unbelievable, strong run by the PAX. It was the day of birth of our brother Sofa, sorry I didn’t wrap the bridge for you brother. I think it is time to flip the narrative that Outhouse isn’t a runner. If you can run 9 minute miles and still talk trash, you are a runner. Great perseverance by Bloomer.

We are 1/12 of the way done with the year, how are we doing? Focus and finish strong!!

Thanks for letting me lead, Gravy out!!
