A Nightmare of a Run

Disclaimer:  This backblast is written by Meatball on behalf of Nightmare.

17 Pax posted this morning for what turned out to be a special day at Crusade.  Treadmill stopped by on his way to #Anchor to present the Crusade pax with the Shovel Flag.  A special thanks to him for making Crusade feel official now.  Also, today was Nightmare’s VQ. Nightmare stepped up when YHC asked for some new leaders.  Great job this morning and thank you for selecting a nice hilly run in the morning heat.  Guess he thought it was easy as he wore his weighted vest.

Conditions: Around 80 and humid.

Disclaimer, count off, go over route.

The Thang:
Make a left out of the church and head down N. Lake Drive.  Make a left onto Old Cherokee. Run up and make a left into Benton Creek neighborhood (Plantation Drive). Make a right onto Appalachian Trail.  Take second left back onto Plantation Drive and head back out to Old Cherokee.  Run back down hill and make right onto N. Lake Drive. Head back to church. Note:  A few pax also added in the Hammock Drive dead end for added mileage.
