11 pax posted at Midoriyama on Tuesday. The Italian bicyclist ran, grandma walked, and the rest of the pax followed me because I definitely knew where I was going.


Some stuff like SSH, merkins, and squats.

The Thang:

It’s almost running season for me again and honestly I’m looking forward to it. I’ve kind of missed it. Somebody help me this doesn’t sound right! I’ve grown to welcome discomfort overtime. I like the feeling of pushing hard. Running provides that for sure. Anyway I decided to bump the running up a little since we’ve been doing shorter distance running in the heat. Also from time to time I like to throw in running with a brick or two just to make the suck a little worse. So we only had enough for 1 a piece but that sucks enough. Down the road we went. At the picnic shelter we stopped for some step ups and dips. Down the trail at the lake we bear crawled the first bridge. We stopped for some seal jacks ic. Bear crawled the next bridge. Off the trail onto the powerline. We stopped for some Hillbillies and squats. Mosey and stop for some Imperial Walkers and Lil Gumbys. Mosey to what looks like  the first intersection of a triangle area on Google maps to do 5 brickees. Mosey to the next intersection for 5 more. Now it’s much more overgrown than it appears on Google so I began to question which way to go. I should have went with my gut but went with my 2nd guess and stayed on the power line looking for the next intersection. As you may guess that was wrong. Now we weren’t ever lost because I knew where it would take us too but we did start to run low on time so I made the call to turn around and hit the trail to cut through to the dam road. At this point the storm was rolling in and the woods were getting pretty dark. We stopped a few more times along the way for some punches holding the brick ic so the group could stay together. We ended up about 5 minutes late which was just enough time for it to start raining.

Q fail, yep and I’m ok with it. I learned from it and that’s the point. If we don’t try we will never know. We will never grow. Get out of the comfort zone and do something stupid, meow.
