9 pax posted to chugg through the pitch black of the McAlpine woods.
4 or 6 miles into the woods and up a hilly loop. The course definitely requires a headlamp so as not to end up in some ravine or stumbling over some form of wildlife. It does reward one with a good hill interval though with which to test the strength, stamina and mental fortitude required to “sprint” up the hill.
With plenty of pax out on the course this morning the 5:30ers looked like a well-oiled pack of locomotives tunneling through the woods. Alas, distance and endurance soon spread the locomotives up.
Tiger Rag posted for his first run at the Devil’s Turn today, and ran strong up the hills, setting the pace and pushing the pack.
With the cold weather, the insects are gone and so too the spiders. A special treat for the 5:15ers as we no longer have to clear the trail of the webs spun overnight.
What we smelt last week, Mall Cop saw this morning. Skunk alert!
Bug eater seems to be getting faster by the week. And Pretty Boy QB is no slouch either. Both were working especially hard this morning.
And much thanks to Donkey Kong this morning for helping Q and lead the late group through their paces. If 49er wasn’t comotose in his fartsac, I’m sure he would have been much appreciative.
