Beautiful morning in downtown Cary this morning – Burt showed up in full golf attire to celebrate the first Thursday of the Masters (John Daly shorts, Footjoys, putter, etc.) He looked good – but later on learned that footjoys are not the best running shoes.
Pleasantries exchanged, Coney gave a quiet disclaimer to our FNG, Nantan started barking about the time so we were off.
YHC shot down the road like he was out of a cannon, around the corner. When YHC reached the stop light, only PBX had managed to keep up – and there was lots of loud mumblechatter as the Pax tried to catch up. (Many explained they had never seen YHC move that fast)
We continued our run at a much slower pace to the pocket park. What better place to start off Masters Thursday besides Cary’s only patch of green grass.
20 – SSH, 20 – MC, 15 – GM, 15– hillbilly (With a special shout out to our IR brother Mylon Hill)-, Sir Fazio – 10 each way
Then we continued on our way with YHC promise of a tour of Cary’s finest beer establishments.
First stop – past the parking lot to Durham Road and the newest downtown Cary brewery – Jordan Lake Brewing.
Burt handled the tour guide activities and gave folks a run down of this fine establishment and then finally, we got to work.
B – BTTW (5 count down the line)
E – Elevens (Squats/Merkins)
E – Empty Wheelbarrow with partners – 1x back and forth was enough)

A – 10 Abe Vigoda
N – 20 Nolan Ryans 10 each arm
D – Dan Taylor – 1:4 Squat/Lunge – up to 5/20
Run to Crosstown Pub where your tour guide was Open Out. He gave a short but effective rundown on crosstown and then we did the following at a quick clip as time was running tight

F – 20 Floyd Mayweather – 10 each arm
U – 20 Up straddle hop – 10 each leg
N – 15 Never Cross Dolly –
Run back to the starting point – when we were at the corner on our way back, we picked up coxswain. He claimed he had seen us running down academy at the start (which was promptly at 545) but after he parked and ran up that way he was never able to locate us. Props to him for sticking around for us to come back.

Thanks all of you – enjoyed the mumblechatter and the camaraderie.
It is truly and honor and privilege to lead.
