Run Those Hills!

Run Those Hills!

Time intervals times deux.

We left the parking lot after a disclaimer of wear your headlamp and reflective device.  Some of us had all of the required safety gear, some had none and others had none.  We all own this stuff since we have gathered it through the years with relays so please start wearing it.  We run on roads every day and it makes no sense to not wear what we have.

We did a warm up around the bull ring and then down Rushmore to the parking lot at the corner of Rushmore and Ballantyne Commons.  Usual Brat exercises: heels, toes, butt kickers, high knees, B skips, and Zombie walks.

Mosey to the corner of Ballantyne Commons and Rushmore at the base of Nevis.  Running up the right hand side towards Lancaster Hwy.  Kept the same intervals as last week 2:1, 4:2, 6:3, 8:4, and 10:1.  Cut that last one close but almost everyone got in.  Ran up Nevis twice and then back into the Ballantyne Meadows neighborhood.  Steep hills in there so we got a couple of laps in there before it was time for a CannonBall Run at the top of Nevis back to the AO.  It was choose your own adventure at that point.  Look up Gold Digger couple of 80s references in there.

Great work by all.  Those hills are no joke and can make you want to puke.  Saw no evidence of that today.  Just good ole fashion hard work out of everyone.  Don’t be afraid of hills.  We love them and are good at running them.

I think my month, more like two weeks, as Q is over but I believe I get the privilege of leading again in Feb at some point.

Enjoy your day.  Sorry if I left anyone out of the Pax list.  All by memory.
