Gaston County’s Premier running AO

So the PAX gathered with more than a threat of rain to run the 5 miles of the Coconut Horse.  It was 67 degrees and sort of muggy but there was a fairly strong breeze that kept things cool.  As we gathered our humble Nantan whispered to me that I was the Q.  Thanks for the advance notice!  As there was one minute to spare I declared my status as the Q and then we moseyed off into the Gloom at 0630 sharp.

We started out with fairly brisk pace but it was still conversational.  YHC, Tool Time and Whoopee were honored to be running with Remo towards the front when Whoopee challenged us to come up with words of wisdom to share with Remo since there are decades separating our ages.  Some wisdom was imparted at this time.  Remo is inspiring us with his preparations to go to USMC boot camp in April.  We are living vicariously through this fine young man.

The Nantan then challenged us to quicken the pace through the downhill section towards the Greenway.  The pace was almost jailbreak speed but slowed a little once on the Greenway.  Especially when we realized the creek had overflowed its banks and deposited several large mounds of silt and mud which were hard to see at that time of the morning.  Madoff and Messi were fast and steady as always and most of the group stayed close.

As we continued on the Greenway, three shadowy figures appeared ahead and it was almost time to set up a flanking maneuver except we recognized them as Pockets, Oompa Loompa and Hipaa who had taken the Hudson cut.  The groups continued on towards the goal of finishing the run and despite a headwind we got to the end.  Whoopee snuck up behind me and went for the pass on the home stretch and then went back to pick up the six.  I started after him and after a while began wondering if he was just running home.  Fortunately we then found the six and the entire group finished together.  A quick COT was held just as the rain began pouring down.  Four stayed for Coffeerama and Whoopee took care of the check.  #classact  (Hipaa is a HC for next week…YHC threatened a convergeanace coffeerama next week at 0715!)

There was some serious brainstorming ideas that came out of Whoopee.  Perhaps a future event that would involve first and second F’s and a large body of water.  Remo declared that although he trains M-F at the recruiting station, when he posts to F3 and gets around the PAX he comes away refreshed.  Aye brother!

Until next time…
