Pax: Crab Cakes and Selleck

QiC : Ethanol

On a most wonderful morning, The Maize was coated in post 4th of July haze.  That may be the reason that so many PAX couldn’t find their way.  As I stood there, all alone, like the last kid to get picked at kickball, I was faced with a decision….. to push on and run the workout solo or to head back to the house and climb back in the fart sack.  The hard right proved to be the right call.  As I started to mosey, I saw the sight of Crab Cakes busting around the corner.  I circled back and grabbed him for a beatdown…. We would later be joined by Selleck, at roughly the 0600 mark… he claims that he was there “doing his own workout” until he caught sight of us running the Maize…. Jury is still out on that one.

We called Omaha this morning on our workout.  The original plan was to knock out a bear crawl “ROF”… with the limited number of folks, we changed gears and converted to a string of pearls around the lake.

We started out at the shovel flag and hit the trail…. we got in just under 2 miles and managed a pretty solid beatdown.

Somewhere in between the middle of the workout and the end, Selleck showed up looking fresh and ready to run.  His presence was met with open arms… and some fart sack comments.  All the same, we did not leave him where we found him… we scooped him up and he helped us bring it in strong.
