Arrive with 4 minutes and there’s only 2 other pax …. Well maybe it’s the temps or the closeness to summer ….. but wait headlights and more headlights …. What’s up!!! Suddenly with one minute to go Broke is counting and I do as well only to come up with 15!!
Pledge and announce the run is to Snoballs and back …. I even utilize the wise words of JJ to “ Go half as far as you wish and return!” Although for me …. It’s the Full Monty …. I dont announce but I intend to complete the trek to Snoballs ( whether it’s to try and find the elusive Whoopee sized Diablo ( or perhaps it will surface on one of the eleven upcoming dates for his Q as he can’t remember his birth date and just chose random numbers !) but I DO plan on reaching that first goal and the second goal is to do this in under 45 minutes.

Well, check out the title …. Even though I reset timer on phone upon reaching Snoballs and took a 4 second break ( which may be what cost me) my time on the return trip was 1 minute less !! I would finish at 6:16 and 10 seconds …. My goal was a return to preCovid when Tool Time came over to Q and his being there helped influence me to finish 9 seconds before 45minutes !!

this addition is to let those who’ve asked about the splits : 

trip down to Snoballs was 23:43 and return was 22:07

Today was an amazing run nevertheless as there were so many present and I thought back to when Monk posted alone and was wondering whether The Pub could make payroll ( and continue ?) look at us NOW!!
Several pax reached out to me night before and I’m so pleased to say they all posted …. This is a very good route but I believe the calls were influenced some by my route choice!
