It was a beautiful crew on a, shocker! hot and inhumanely humid morning, out at the Morris Bridge/Flatwoods area. Representing the FU Runners headed to Vermont were, Andy 1 & 2, Candi, Tracy, Patrick, and Andrea. We also had the pleasure of visiting with Puerto Rican Ron, Leon, the lovely Michelle, and a nice lady I met for the first time, Bridget.
Andy and Patrick took me too long and too fast around the park, we were a mile short on the main loop as we clocked in a solid 14ish, and I guarantee we chatted more than Kathleen Wheeler's sewing circle (by the way, check out and buy some of her blankets, they are dynamite!) All I know is we didn't get Andy 2 talking enough because I threw up in my mouth while trying to keep up with him, and I'm not sure there wasn't part of a lung in of those mixtures. I was doling out my un-solicited advice to the two of them regarding Vermont, then realized that these guys are tougher than Lloyd Bridges with sand in his undergarments, they didn't need squat from me, and they'll do amazing things at Vermont and on!
After our run, we caught up with the rest of the crew at First Watch (even Andrea slummed it, and ate with us!)
My gosh, it was what the running community is all about. We ran, we struggled and we had a good time chatting about the next big thing, Vermont. I'm stoked!
