The BackBlast:

5 PAX warmed up with a 6-pack ab workout in the early gloom, before 11 PAX & our 4-legged friend Minnie showed up for the main event.  When Tow Bar arrived and made the rounds greeting everyone there, we knew we were in for a high energy and positive time!

The Thang
YHC began with greeting and disclaimer before explaining the “Groundhog Day” themed run: try to get as many circuits of a .36 mile loop in as possible.

The Circuit:

  • Right on Barbara Ln
  • Left on Highland Ave
  • Left on Greenbriar Rd

Begin the circuit again by taking a left on Barbara Ln… rinse & repeat

It was impressive to see men push themselves towards their respective goals this morning.  Some ran more than 4 miles while others ran longer without stopping than they had in years – and all encouraged and supported each other along the way.
YHC was especially impressed when one PAX said that he was going to run from “box to box” – meaning a full lap around the block starting and ending at a cardboard box that had blown into the road.  He did it! (and before the workout was over, the box was returned to the sidewalk for pick-up)
Ask yourself: what is your “Box-to-Box” goal for today?  Pray about that – set your sights on it – run the race with perseverance!
