After weeks (months?) of run training for BRR, doubling up most mornings (Insomnia + Vesper = CRAZY), several #themaynards, it was nice this morning for a PAX of 9 or so to head off for a coolish Vesper. Insomnia - PBX, Chanticleer, Largemouth, Hermes, Shut-In, Callahan Vesper 4s - Shut-In(run doubledown), Ollie, Term Paper, Goose, … Continue reading

MaBell reminded me of my mom, who always would call/send me a message the morning of someone's birthday/anniversary: "hey sweetie, call ___________, it's their birthday today". Anyhoo, MaBell declared that today, August 30, … Continue reading
After a very long hiatus from Carpex F3 posts, Hotspot egged me on by stating that he and Hasslehoff were doing an abbreviated Insomnia, followed by Vesper, and asked if I wanted him to take the Shovel Flag there for me. Smack. So YHC HC'd to the double down. After a brisk (7'45"/mi) 4+ miles, … Continue reading

Leaving bond park sr center at 0500 sharp. Right on High House, Left on Maynard, bottle of water in blue cooler at the Cary HS water tower, left on High House, left into Bon Park just in time for COT. Sounds simple. Yet completely stupid and utterly pointless!

For the PAX that thought they might squeeze in a leisurely extra workout or two before Memorial Day, there was no leisure to be found. It's officially swimsuit season and YHC wanted the PAX in their best shape. If you're wondering if the season has started due to warmer weather or the torrential downpours, yes.
