Moleskin: The pax were full of mumble chatter this morning, probably in anticipation of the tricks and treats the evening would afford them. Many verbalized their disdain for the high number of low planks and the wonderful pavement. This was particularly the case with the tunnel of love. T-claps to Costanza for inspiring the ranks by often running ahead of the group with Jack (o’lantern). The pax were excited to welcome FNG Peter Lehman who is now the official owner of the moniker, “Pole Position.

COT: Announcements included Mud Run 2020 sign-up! Cottonmouth has been moved to early January. Christmas party, Patty Pack 5K; Five-year anniversary party in March in Charlotte and the LongRun (with possible relay option).
