Bridge-A-Thon! “That’s the Last Thing I Would Expect!”

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 08/31/2021
  • QIC: Airbags (R)
  • The PAX: Felony, Hat Trick, Prunetang (R), Deuce, Buttercup, Outhouse (R), Terminator, Dollar Bill, Thumper, Saigon Sam (R) and Flo.

11 PAX joined QIC on a humid Tuesday morning ready for Run Day! QIC had already prepared the PAX on Slack, notifying them of the Bridge-A-Thon workout, so they knew ahead of time what the BD was. (Or they thought they did!) After the warmups, we headed out of BL toward the bridge. As we approached Nocatee Pkwy, QIC turned left and there were several loud voices yelling RIGHT! Since the QIC is of the RESPECT age, they must have thought I forgot how to get to the Intracoastal Bridge. QIC never said “which” bridge. As we made our way to the short wood bridge on the route to Nocatee, I could hear loud sounds of joy from the PAX. Prunetang was so filled with joy that he tried to kiss QIC. (Thankfully he couldn’t reach my lips) Full BD below.
