YHC posted a pre-blast of sorts with the advice to wear a hat.  Five of the seven PAX were wearing hats.  Two of the PAX (YHC included) were wearing rain jackets.  Buckeye had on reflective gear (but his shoes were untied per the usual) and Defib had on his Noxgear vest with the green color that matches my eyes.  It didn’t rain as hard as I would have hoped.  Everyone got wet but it was a more pleasant rain than anything like the tropical storm conditions of past workouts or the famous run which the Q skipped out on but purchased two Starbucks gift cards for the lucky PAX in lieu of completing the run himself.  Alas, YHC wishes his zipper didn’t get stuck on his windbreaker as it would have been more comfortable.  It felt like it was shedding season for wrestling.

In any event, for the sake of safety, the PAX chose the run to the Greenway entrance and back which is all sidewalk and only one street crossing.  There is also part of the “Gut Check” on that route which would count as a small hill in Mortimer terms.  Speaking of the Mortimer, YHC is a HC as team Captain for next years race.  The date for the Mortimer isMarch 19th, 2021.  As YHC told his M last year it is only a one day race.  (It starts at midnight)  I am hoping some other Gashouse PAX will HTFU and get a team ready.   It raises money for charity and is an adventure race.  Rumor has it that there will be 117 miles (up from 106) and 13,500′ elevation gain (up from 12,500′)  That is the same weekend as the P200 but doesn’t necessarily require an overnight stay or a vacation day.

I digress…the Pub was fun.  The pace was quick but not such that we couldn’t talk about life.  We are all better off for starting the day with a stop at the Pub.
