There was a 6 pack of Pax for the Rooster on Friday morning. If this 6 pack were a verity pack it was split evenly down the middle, 3 ruckers (obviously a smooth ale) and 3 runners (without a doubt a high ABV but bitter IPA).

The Ruckers:

The 3 ruckers (Defect, Hollywood, and Puck) set off on a favorite rucking route.

Right onto College St

Left on North Lee St

Right on Francis St

Note: This road is dark, very dark. How dark? Dark enough for one rucker to almost step on the crack head of the animal kingdom, the opossum. Had this been a raccoon or a fox or any other animal it would have seen the blinking lights and head lamps and run away, but this was a opossum. The opossum hissed, the ruckers took evasive maneuvers and disaster was averted.

The Runners:

T-claps to the Q today, Khakis who arrived early for some XL miles illuminated in his new tracer360 light up vest.

The 3 runners (Happy Trees, Shankapotomus, and Khakis) set out to run the Crosson loop and then head down Bernard St for some BRR training. Things did not go as planned. The Q was having some discomfort in his legs after the XL milage but decided to push through.

At this point someone called an audible and the BRR training route was called off and the runners set out to find the Ruckers. The runners setout on the rucking route. After almost being stepped on when ruckers came through, the opossum must have moved on.

The runners didn’t catch up the ruckers until everyone was back on Main St and almost back to the flag.
