When you have the Q on a morning like this one, two thoughts run through your head…1) I hope someone else shows up so this workout isn’t a bust and 2) I hope no one else shows up so I don’t have to do this workout. I pulled up to see one car in the parking lot…site Q Fireman Ed. While we discussed breakfast plans, Gooney pulls in, then Smash. Well, guess we’re on.

My plan was to keep us dry during most of the workout. Problem was, we had to run about 8/10ths of a mile to get there. Still, it was nice to do the stair circuit completely out of the elements. I don’t think that makes us soft…just smart.

Maybe a little more running than usual for BaseCamp…but I’m trying to get back into running shape…so thanks for obliging. Fireman Ed mainly skipped and danced in the rain anyway, all jazzed up from his Tigers being No. 1. It’ll be sad when the Cocks crush his dreams later this month at Willy B…but at least he’ll get his BCS playoff ticket deposit back. Gooney did solid work on the stairs in spite of an MCL sprain, which he probably sustained during a Brian Kelly like tirade over some alleged poor officiating call during this weekend’s ND game. Smash also did solid work and didn’t seem slowed at all, despite being all decked out in his North Face pants and jacket rain gear.

A pleasure to Q this morning…thanks for the opportunity Fireman Ed and Simba.
