Small chance of rain tomorrow, so plan on coupons (and gloves if you wish). If dry or no lightening, we will likely move a little bit with some running.

6/7/22 BB BoW @ the O
I prefaced the PB with the plan for the morning would depend on which “40 year old ailment” I was afflicted with (or free of) that day. As it was, I woke up feeling pretty good, all things considered. We started with a warm-up 1/4 mi lap and COP on the tennis courts. Largely focusedContinue reading “6/7/22 BB BoW @ the O”
6/7/22 – BoW @ the “O” PB
No coupons, but running shoes would be recommended. I have several “over 40” ailments going at any one time, so we will see what hurts the least tomorrow morning and go from there.
1/25/22: PB – BoW @ the O
Tomorrow is going to be a mixed bag, and a choose your own adventure. I am dealing with some ailments, and I know a few others are too. Tomorrow will be you do you. Bring a coupon, dress warm. No running shoes needed.

PB: 12/10/21 – Pleasantville
Luckily Airplane reminded me he signed me up to Q tomorrow. Small chance of rain tomorrow, and I hate being cold and wet. So we will go with a plan A and a plan B.

10/19/21: PB – BoW @ the O
You should bring a coupon. Shoes that would allow you to run are also good. Gloves couldn’t hurt either.

9/28/21: PB – BOW @ the O
I did this at the Mutt a month or so ago, and was rated a solid 2.3. You will need a coupon tomorrow, and gloves are also a good idea. Other types of weight can work, but a coupon will probably be the best. No distance running tomorrow.
9/23/21: PB – Extender @ The Mutt
We will abide by most of the Mutt rules (we will not go near any wet grass). Putting out a pre-blast actually does break a core Mutt tenant, which is why I said most. I will hold with tradition and do at least 50% of it on the fly however. Bring running shoes and gloves.Continue reading “9/23/21: PB – Extender @ The Mutt”

PB: 9/14/21 – BoW @ the O
Come on out tomorrow to the O. Tomorrow will be lighter on the running (note, I said lighter not non existent). Bring a coupon. Gloves are usually a good idea as well.
9/2/21: PB – Extender @ the Mutt
My last Q at the Mutt was 40 minutes of man-makers. I think that went over well with the mutters. Rinse & repeat? Show up to find out! Gloves and shoes recommended.

Weather: 70 degrees, 95% humidity Pax (7): Handbook, Harry Caray, Alfalfa, Russdiculous, McAfee, Sump Pump (R ), Fergie (Q) The PB called this a run smedium, which was a hedge in the event we had lightening and needed to find some cover.

8/31/21 – BoW @ the O

8/21/20 – PB: The Chopper @ The Vet
Come out, and let Fergie make a man out of you (that’s foreshadowing). I know there is the ruck event happening later that evening, and I know there should be a good turn-out for that. If you’re rucking, this will be a nice warm-up. If you’re not, it should be a good start to yourContinue reading “8/21/20 – PB: The Chopper @ The Vet”

Pax: Captain Crunchberry, Holly Roller, Porkchop, Cratchit, Double Down, Jolly Rancher, Fergie (Q) Weather: low 70s, but an uncommon lack of air movement for PV – a bit sticky Airplane contacted me about co-Qing this (after he had already picked it up).

6/5/20: PB – Return of the Pleasantville
I will mark my return to the gloom with the Grand Re-opening of Pleasantville. Technically, this is supposed to be a co-Q between Airplane and myself, however his reliability rating with on-time departures is WAY down lately. Either way, the curfew is lifted, so we will get moving at the normal, 5:30 start time. It’sContinue reading “6/5/20: PB – Return of the Pleasantville”
