Weird start this morning as the site Q pulled up 3 minutes early to warn the group about the tight stretch with no sidewalk up 140, but as I was pulling in I see 5 PAX’s taking off down the road…. seems they wanted to get a jump on the faster pace so they took off early.
No warm ups here, we just run….
Headed out and took Green road up to Arnold Mill. Planned on keeping the cemetery theme this month and wanted to run past the Arnold Mill Cemetery on 140. It got a bit dicey with no shoulder and cars whizzing by us in the dark, but all PAX made it through safely and were able to make the cemetery.
After the near death experience, and a few bad cemetery dad jokes from Ha-Ha, we hung a left on Cox road, and another on Etris for the uphill climb. Left on Hardscrabble took us right back home to the starting point.
My brain wasn’t functioning well and I forget the one prayer request we had, but for all prayers both spoken and not.
Always an honor to be with these fine men in the early morning doing something to better ourselves. Keep it up fellas.
