It was hopping at the Hoppy Like this morning. With spring race season coming there are many folks (non-F3) out running at 0530 preparing for race season. For F3 it is just another DRP as we work to make ourselves better.
We had two out of town visitors this morning: Toughskins and Transporter. Welcome!
After some initial discussions and breaking into two groups and an outline of routes to run, we left downtown on Academy St. Both groups took a left on Westside Pkwy. The Clydesdales took the next left on Cumming street to return to N. Main St. while the Gazelles (with YHC in tow) took a left on Windward Pkwy to N Main St. We all ended up back at 35 Milton Ave. about the same time with the Gazelles putting in 5.3 miles in 45 minutes and the Clydesdales putting in around 4 miles.
Great to have 2 visitors in for the run this morning and great to see TO back after being on IR. Def Con 2 is looking close to being back in top form and Zima and Scar have become regulars at the Hoppy Like. Devito is still blasting the hills while YHC is still nursing his legs back into full running shape after the 50K. I guess I would heal faster if I slowed down but it’s not in my vocabulary.
Hope to see more out next week. We really can accommodate multiple paces better with more folks out for the run.
