Pax: Dean, Hook ’em, Gilmore, Crankbait, Shearcon, Boones Farm, Bambi, Crawdaddy (QIC)
8 brave souls gathered under starry skies and in a soup of humidity that made them long for the 12 degree Q’s to come in a few months. Chatter was light and the stretching started early. Hook’em showed for his sophomore Q and was embraced by the Ivy faithfull.
After a no disclaimer start we mosey’d up the hill for WAR.
WAR: 15 X Side Straddle Hops, Frankensteins, Chinooks, Hurdler stretch, Cotton pickers
A quick run through of the course gave some the willies and others a false sense of what may be possible. Either way, it was time to start and the course came at us like a spider monkey. There was no way out.
With a course record of 7:17 set by Kryptonite on 2/27/19 in jeopardy, he was conveniently out of town and a no show to defend his title. The pax started as a group but quickly there was a breakaway from the peloton by Shearcon and Boone’s Farm and they never looked back. End of round one both had beaten the course record and psyched up for a second go.. Round two finished with many guys bettering their times, Dean with a tie and some just dreaming of a Sheetz run (QIC included).
When the smoke cleared Shearcon hoisted the belt having owned the course and proving age is just a number and anything is possible when no one is looking.

T-claps to Crankbait and Hook’em who dug deep and finished under full steam. And best wishes to Gilmore who gave it his best but posted a DNF on the second round. Keep the faith buddy, if Dean can keep coming back and never correctly complete an exercise, all are welcome and these things are but a minor setback..
Final times as follows:
Round 1 Round 2
Shearcon 6:40 6:31
Boone’s Farm 7:08 6:38
Bambi 7:53 8:22
Crawdaddy 7:58 7:51
Dean 8:10 8:10
