YHC had his site-VQ at The Brave scheduled for 12/3 and around 8 PM on 12/2 a post went out on Slack specifically calling for “Fake Brave” at 0530 a mile up the road from The Brave and regulars from The Brave were tagged. Whoa! Wow! How could this be? Mind was reeling, but The Brave must carry on. Two strong men resisted the urge for a 45-minute “Fake Brave” in favor of joining YHC for no sleep till Gibson’s.* (*or whatever it’s now called)
Run towards the Morrison YMCA, stopping for some obligatory warm up — SSH, Goofballs, etc.
Go to Wayfair Meadow for 10x wall jumps, 20x Little Baby Dips on the curb. Repeato for 3 sets.
Head to Briarwick for alternating exercises at driveways
Cut through the woods and head to the YMCA parking lot for trip work:
Head south to the southern roundabout on Community House
Head north on CH to the next roundabout
Head north for another 10x wall jumps
Head back to COT with more running and one more stop for T-merkins
Friday in the gloom was time to get ill and a little Fake Brave wasn’t going to stop that. Big props to Wild Turkey and Midriff for keeping YHC honest and making the site VQ a fun one. Great conversation on the runs and a good time pushing each other through the wall jumps and the roundabout madness. As fate would have it, one of the turncoats was stuck at the light at Community House as the PAX ran up. He looked uncomfortable, some might say guilty. The PAX debated calling exercises in front of his early 2000s Sequoia but opted for the kinder route of a few verbal taunts.
As an update, it turns out the Fake Brave was an attempt to EH a guy who might not have 4 miles in him. YHC can respect that. In the completely unrelated words of Adam Yauch, “Well I got to keep it going keep it going full steam/ Too sweet to be sour too nice to be mean/ On the tough guy style I’m not too keen/ To try to change the world I will plot and scheme”
