Since YHC picked up the Q for today at 2200 the night before, I was winging it all the way this morning.  This group of 8 die hards hit the pavement for an early morning down painment!

The Running

First run was about 1.5 miles, mostly through the parking lot and eventually out the lower entrance and up the hill to the Eye Of The Storm (aka “Artwork”).

We stopped for a little Mary around the circle…  PAX on their six, shoulder to shoulder, for some LBCs while #AcceleratingMan on the right made lap around the art.  Then next man, etc… until everyone made one lap.  Probably about 150 LBCs.

Next we took a little breather and talked about #Acceleration, often conjuring the image of high speed. However, acceleration is simply #Movement that is marginally faster today than it was yesterday.  It means each day we can do something to be faster (or better) than we were yesterday. Acceleration is movement towards achieving a goal.

We also talked about #Impact, or forcible contact to strong effect.  Where can you make an impact? Are you accelerating? After pondering these deep thoughts for a few minutes, it was back to the grind.  It’s a running workout, right?  Let’s accelerate.

For the next segment we head down hill back towards the lower entrance.  To keep things in sync with the 6, we began to loop back every other light post to keep the PAX close.  We then headed up to the top of the parking lot and around for the final loop.

Total distance today was 2.56 miles.

With 8 minutes left, we attempt to finish up with some Mary (People’s Choice)…
