Inspired by the turbo giphy of a lawnmower yanking someone across the street, I decided to pull us through a tour of Airlie. Nine of us ran toward the drawbridge and seven of us crossed it. Four of us held plank with we waited for the other three. We crossed under the walkway and ran down Airlie towards Oleander. Effort was to loop the triangle and back to the AO. Clean Cut looked at his watch nervously at about six AM and wondered out loud if we were going to get back in time. We did some loops before St. Andrews on the Sound while three of the crew who failed geometry decided to take the sum of the angle back instead of the hypotenuse. I told CC that whether we got back by 6:15 was up to him. Just a matter of distance over time equals pace. Four of us caught them at Bridgetender and scaled the bridge and back to the AO at a brisk pace. 6:15 arrival on the dot. We found our lost sheep and circled back to usher in the flock. Thanks for your patience and flexible on our COT. Technically, if we all get faster running five miles is completely feasible prior to EndX. Either way, great run and pace by two of our more recent PAX, Clean Cut and King Tut. Thanks for pacing with me. Impressive run by Flight Nurse. I thought that dude only rucked. Squeegee and Goober kept a solid pace with The Flying Wasp who is still on the recovery train, but rocked out some good mileage. Reminder from Flighty to not make little old ladies feel like they are going to get run over when we hog the sidewalk. Concede the right way! Clean Cut's grandmother, Jenny, is having to sell her home and move into an assisted living facility, prayers for Crockett's recovery from surgery on his foot, prayers for CD's mother going through chemo, praise for Flipper and her commitment to Clemson for soccer. Great reminder to keep reaching out to people in our lives that need a pick me up. Pleased to lead. -Gump
