#Amble & The #DevilsPitchFork

Our esteemed AO Q, Dry Heave, mentioned after Monday’s #amble run that we hadn’t done the #devilspitchfork in quite some time and that maybe some hill running for the pax was in order. So, YHC volunteered to lead this merry group of men down and up and down and up again. In checking my running log, DH was correct, it had been at least 6 months since the dreaded fork route has made an appearance. I would say that this needs to be a more featured route in the rotation from now on. Also, it is never too early to start training for the 2016 edition of the BRR.

Conditions:  Near perfect, actually. 69 degrees with 73% humidity.

NMM:

  • Great work by the pax this morning. This is not an easy route and we had several that this was their first time on the course. They all did great.
  • T-Claps to Gump, Jr. (Kenny G – Jack Fleischer) for busting it out and sprinting past the field on Shirley. Ran out of juice for Butler, but really powered up the others.

Announcements:

  • #HHDHH going tonight.
  • Sign up for the Mud Run.
  • Sign up for the P200. Teams are forming now.
  • Ray Tanner run coming up.

That is all.
