This must be the week to share your Weinke. YHC was schedule to Q at The Matrix on Monday, but came down with a case of the winter plague Sunday night. Being a conscientious Pax, YHC messaged the planned Weinke to Pop Tart in the event YHC was unable to make it. While YHC was cocooned in the FS Monday AM, Pop Tart bestowed YHC’s Weinke upon the Matrix Pax. Fast forward to Friday at 0500, and upon arriving at SCMS, YHC was summoned to Slim Fast’s driver-side window. Turns out he’d been afflicted with the unwanted funk and won’t be able to Q today. He was kind enough to pay his Weinke forward before heading to an appointment with Miracle Max. Rest up and get well soon SF! Thanks to Nomad for stepping up and guiding Sensei this morning. The two of you fell down only three or four times. Not bad. Just kidding, you were flawless.
Total mileage ranged between 5 and 7 miles for the Pax, with Purell and Fleetwood leading the way. Benny was held back by a cranky IT band, otherwise he would have been up front as well. Lots of strong efforts and determination on display this morning. The 400/800 workout is a grind, and it hurts. But we keep going because it makes us stronger, faster, and better.
Sign up for the Joe Davis Run for Recovery, which takes place on January 6. 5K or 10K option. All Pax that attend Mountain Goat can easily knock out a 5K. Sign up today. Just do it. It’s the right thing to do. 2018 Joe Davis Run for Recovery
