SPREADSHEETS FROM THE GLOOM:
Awesome Morning. Awesome AO and Great mix of PAX from Area 51(all parts),Metro and TheFort. Centurion is becoming a weekly mini-convergence. Jamboree solidified my plans last week as he made a foray into the outer realms of Carmel Commons last week. I decided be great to see how coming in the other direction would pan out, however ran out of time and not able to unleash Mermaid’s Triple Nickel on the Carmel Commons Loop
The initial Q juice(extra adrenaline that miraculously flows at onset of a workout) ended after the backwards run uphill. As YHC focused on cadence his legs/feet,not exactly sure, were not moving well for MCs, Mumblechatter Escargot,Champagne and et al whipped YHC back into shape & rejuvenated YHC for the slog ahead. Mumblechatter works.
Big Shout Outs: Boomer(My Sponsor) thank you for crossing over the DMZ from Metro to join us today. Strong Week for you Cycling preparing for 24hrs of Booty,SIB&Sweet6,Brick Work at Run&Gun,you have earned your vacation for next week.
Senator Tressel and Rock Thrill bringing it strong from the Fort. TClaps for the Men of Respect; TClaps for your max effort not your age, so solid: Checkpoint,Snowflake & Frehley’s Comet (I maybe missing 1 other respect) Simply Strong. Centurion is a great mix of Hates,Old and Respect all pushing one another.
RunStopper,Abacus and Frasier for hanging, encouraging and empowering the Six this morning. The Six thank you for not stopping and always churning to the PAX. Chelms & Cadillac strong KB work and then Chelms bringing along your Paver for the road.Cadillac for stepping up and volunteering to partner carry YHC’s 233 pounds.
One Piece of Useless Roman Trivia Needed to survive 21st Century: Derived as PAX ran to avoid the charging Garbage Truck: Scipio kicked Hannibal’s(Not F3 A51’s Hannibal) Six at the Battle of Zama, Scipio lined his troops new formation which rendered the Hannibal’s mighty elephants obsolete. Amazing how a Garbarge Truck combined w/ AO site name can jar some unused trivia lodged deep in gray matter.
Snowflake pointed out during LBCs when a sweat angel forms on the asphalt and a PAX is wearing the F3 High Quality MUDGEAR (Buy one Now Online; because Mudgear Rocks & has best customer service in the World) I AM 3rd Race Jersey. The Image will imprint onto the sweat angel leaving the I am 3rd impression for all to see. Pretty Cool,look for it next time in the Gloom. Best after LBCs
Really had a blast today. Really hard to point out individual PAX today because the entire PAX bought it today. The PAX bought it to the AL Carmichael and the PAX kept it together thru out the 3 mile excursion pushing one another. It really was an honor to lead such a solid group of MEN. It was an Honor.
Thank you to Chelms and Escargot for giving me the opportunity to crossover the Metro/A51 DMZ and lead Centurion.
