The month of August is often a time of dread for some. Students, teachers, and parents all cringe at the thought of summer being over and another school year beginning. Homework, strict bed times, and packing lunches are right around the corner.
However, The Pub has a slightly different outlook on August. The summer often involves missed posts due to vacations or everyday summer fun. August offers the chance to get back into a routine of posting on a regular schedule, or in some cases, establishing new routines including taking Q for the first time. So at The Pub instead of going Back to School, the PAX goes Back to Cool.
A big part of Back to Cool is the Kotter who hasn’t posted at the Pub (or anywhere) for a while or the PAX that has never posted at The Pub because “it’s just a running AO”. Earlier this week, a Kotter reached out to me on the details of The Pub. I encouraged him to post and was hopeful that he’d show. I got an “I’m in” text on the way out of the door headed to The Pub.
I showed up to find several PAX waiting including the Kotter who was ready to go.
0530 on the clock, time to go.
Quick disclaimer and then the route. Out to Martha’s and back to see if we could actually find some Sambriches doing something.
First, The Pledge.
Then, the mosey.
At the start, YHC thought it was going to be a great, cool morning for a run. With a breeze blowing, it was ideal. It didn’t take long for the breeze to halt and the air to get thick. It may be Back to Cool, but these conditions were anything but cool.
Some of the PAX found Oompa who offered encouragement out of the window of his car before he soon joined the PAX in the mosey. Although we did find an Oompa, there were no reported sightings of the Sambriches.
Plenty of events to sign up for: Ragnar, 9/11 Stair Climb, JJ 5k, Stop Soldier Suicide Run in Belmont

Prayer to take us out
Until next time…
By the way, there is one week of #BackToSchool remaining. If you haven’t posted at The Pub in a while, post next week. If you’ve never posted at The Pub, post next week. If the thought of a running workout concerns you, post next week (it ain’t that bad).
