Hip Hop Bear Crawls

43 downtown Columbia men (including 1 FNG) assembled in the gloom at Dreher High School for a split Q between Splinter and Sway and the Amble guys training for the Governor’s cup. The 9 or 10 runners arrived a little early and took off on their weekly “long run,” this week an 8-mile jaunt (cue the Eminem) through Shandon. The remaining pax counted off, formed a double ring COP for warmup, and then split with either Splinter or Sway depending on their number. It was universally determined that bear crawls and single-leg brick hops are un-fun.
