Pre-Blast Fast Twitch: Those women should have maced me

I have unfinished business to attend to:
This one goes back a ways, but has continued to remain in the back of my mind.  On December 4, 2018, I posted to Fast Twitch for the 1st time and quickly realized I was surround with guys that have obviously run these roads many many many times.  I had never heard of Raintree Ln and for sure had no idea it was a connector between Providence and 51.   This being said, When the directions were given for the morning route I simply figured there was no need for me to know the way because we all know only the guy out front needs to know and the rest of us try to mindlessly follow.

I was wrong and after getting to the turn around point at Rea and 51, I soon realized there was no one in sight for me to follow. At some point (what I now know as Strawberry ln) I did see 4 blinking lights off in distance and figured it was the PAX, so I followed and continued to follow as the group seemed to be getting faster and faster. By time I caught up on this unlit dark road I was panting uncontrollably and must have looked like a crazed crack head running from the cops. This obviously was a great way to suddenly come to the realization that the 4 blinking lights were actually 4 ladies out for a jog and being pursued down a dark road by the above said crack head to the end of a dead-end road. I have no idea how I was not maced on the spot and then pummeled to death by them (although at that time I would have taken that vs. continue to run aimlessly attempting to find the AO.) After turning back, I saw a path on the right so I took it thinking maybe I cut a corner and find my way back to Providence.. nope.. I ended up in the middle of a golf course. Now the brilliance of why I need coffee kicks in.

OH YEAH.. I have a phone on me.. Google Maps to the rescue. Make my way to Woodfox Dr over to Raintree and finish with an AYG to the AO just in time for COT to wrap up.

The above was all reference to say.. I never finished the actual route we were supposed to run on 12/4.
So tomorrow we will try to make sure everyone makes it this time. 🙂

I confirmed that I was not there before asking this: did the Pax notice you missing and go looking for you?

Absolutely the site Q did but to be fair they were looking along the route.. not in a golf course. 🙂

This has the signs of a revenge Q. Be wary.
