Five F3 Pax joined 700 odd Carolinian’s to celebrate the 4th of July by pounding the pavement for 4 miles around Forest Lake.
Conditions: Getting steamy… 75 degrees, 91% humidity and rising up off the asphalt
The four mile race, advertised as “fast and flat,” begins with a 1/4 mile uphill grade on Trenholm Road from near the corner of Trenholm and Forest Drive. Peaking out as runners make the turn onto Springlake Road and then the long but inconsistent downhill slope to the Springlake bridge. Left onto Eastshore, Right on Overcreek and then Right again onto Lakeshore Drive for the 2 mile return leg. The finish line is behind Zoe’s.
COT: Photo Op with the SH.
-T-Claps to the #DoubleDown crew (all of whom came out of the #SwampFox contingent… I’m just sayin’). Likewise, T-Claps to AlterBoy for making his first #Amble workout with style and EH’ing a friend and fellow runner before, during and after the race. #F3WestCola?
-4 miles is not a 5K. The bonus 0.9 miles hurt.
-Lots of other announcements regarding upcoming convergences on Saturday and Tuesday, F3 Columbia Gear, F3 Summer Fuel Challenge and more… check out the standard backblasts for details or browse the web site.
