Covered some ground this morning – somewhere in the neighborhood of 2-2.5 miles

Rocky Balboas brought out the best/worst in the PAX’s coordination skills.  We may need to keep working on that one…

Taking suggestions on a name for the track work

Twinkle Toes gets the award for for most dramatic tumble with his backwards run flop on the track #bruisedtailbone #bruisedego

Hope everyone had fun out there today.  Enjoying the #mumblechatter and camaraderie in our little group.


Rosie stepped up to take the Q next Monday but still need a Q for Monday, May 9th and Twinkle Toes needs Qs for Saturdays after this coming weekend.  Reach out to volunteer – or

Renegade group will meet again this Thursday from 5:15-6:00 AM for a workout led by Twinkle Toes.  Carrying the music theme forward, this week will be in honor of Prince.  Get ready for some long sets #liveextendedversions?

That’s all for now.  Hope to join y’all back in the #gloom after a brief hiatus in the coming weeks.  I’ll leave you with the immortal words of Rocky himself:

“It ain’t about how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.  It’s how much you can take and keep moving forward.  That’s how winning is done.”
