13 Men posted for this mornings edition of Fast Twitch. If you ever questioned what was meant by gloom this morning certainly clarified that for you. The fog was thick, visibility was limited, the grass was wet, the new track was spotted with puddles: a perfect morning for a workout.
The Q heard a little input for the weinke prior to the workout. “I am not a fan of the track.” “You may want to go light on the hills, we’ve had enough of that BRR training.”, “I’ve got new clean shoes on and don’t want to get them dirty.”
All requests were promptly ignored and off we went.

A good hard working crowd this morning and now 2 brothers from Winston Salem this morning (Starfish and Butter) welcome. A few, who we will not mention, were a little afraid their new kicks were going to get dirty this morning. My personal opinion is that as soon as you lace up for an F3 workout those shoes don’t make it in the house past the garage. They smell and are dirty, just as they should be. You want to keep your shoes clean, walk the mall before it opens early in the morning with the old ladies.
Lots of cheers of excitement when I called for the timed mile! Everyone killed it considering the track was dark, wet, and RFYL was slow moseying all over it. Not sure how everyone did on their time. I knocked it out in about 6:20, I know at least Fraiser, Turkey Leg, Brady, and Hairball were ahead of me as if I needed to state that. I also noticed there was not one watch between Brady, Fraiser and TL. Maybe that’s the secret to running fast. The air resistance on this Garmin is slowing me down. TL was behind me for the first 3 laps. The guy is built like deer and has the foot steps of a Clydesdale. Sounded like I was being tracked down by a Yetti. A Yetti that passed me and took off into the darkness on the final lap.
We may have made the one woman a bit self conscious as we surrounded the outside of the ladies room doing peoples chair with arm raises in cadence while she relieved herself. It’s really her fault for not using the woods or someone’s front yard as some Fast Twitch PAX have been known to do.
Great send off by Purple Haze.
Always an honor to be allowed among a great group of men, much less lead them.
