3 PAX fought the Fartsack this morning to Post at the weekly Running/Rucking site known as Pursuit.
0515 – Warm-up from the Millbridge Clubhouse over the Covered Bridge to the paved path over to the Ridge Haven section of “it’s still Millbridge”.
0525 – Scrap the planned warm-up and workout, but enjoy great 2nd F while looping the outer perimeter of the Ridge Haven section including the Walnut Creek “half” of the loop. Head back to COT at the Millbridge Clubhouse.
0615 – COT
The 2nd attempt at planning a “Challenge” at Pursuit was scrapped due to low turnout. The point of running in a group is to get motivated, get outside your comfort zone, and run with others, but a workout that breaks into 2 groups this morning would have left the PAX running alone. So, an audible was made to enjoy the unusually and unseasonally cool 62 degree temps.
Great 2ndF along the way catching up with 6 time Blue Ridge Relay vet and planned 6man Ultra team in 2021, Flip Phone. YHC and Flip Phone swapped war stories of night terrors and mountain goats while wondering if there will ever be a Waxhaw Express-based BRR team in the future.
Turnbuckle had a solo MillBridge Parkway jaunt going almost end-to-end.
