The Blair Ditch

Posted on

INTRO The stars (and moon) aligned with perfect weather for a Blair Witch themed run through the woods. On my scouting mission the previous week I stumbled upon a huge gobbler, which was the influence for the “As-Is 10 Count.” After a brief disclaimer about a treacherous ditch on the trail, 7 brave runners circled […]

Rain, Rabbit, Rain!

Posted on

The rain was pouring down as I awoke, but there was no way I was going to miss The Rabbit. Wet I can handle. Cold I can handle. Cold and wet begins to be uncomfortable. Fortunately, the temp was a reasonable 55 degrees. No sign of any PAX in the BC clubhouse parking lot until […]

Hockey Tryouts

Posted on

Having never been to the Rabbit before I checked the Q sheet to see who would be leading the charge. With no one slotted in I asked Grunge who it would be and got the dreaded “How about you”. Having been to BC many times I still get lost when I get a block away […]

A Six Pack & Single Track

Posted on

It was time for my long overdue Q of the Rabbit. I was there for the first Grunge led Rabbit and have seen this run go all kinds of directions. Some have felt more like boot camps. Some incorporate more road and speed work. Others, hill repeats, agility drills, or focus on form. Today, I […]

The Fartlek

GTL gave a great message yesterday with regard to stepping outside of your comfort zone. I’ve Q’d all types of AOs except one. Running has been and always will be my least favorite activity, and therefore I have avoided Q’ing The Rabbit. However, Grunge put out a call to lead and, inspired by GTL’s words, […]

I thought about the Army

Posted on

    My dad was in the Army. He served in Vietnam and we spent several years in Berlin, Ft Sill, and a few other Army bases after that. I was very young and eventually he got out so we could all put some roots down vs. moving every few years.  I thought about joining […]

Keep Calm and Taper On

A wise man once said, “Before you criticize, you should walk a mile in their shoes…that way, by the time you are done criticizing them, you are a mile away and you’ve got their shoes.” Alarm goes off, guy quietly gets out of bed so as to not disturb his sleeping wife. He quickly gets […]
