Return to Teeter for Stretch / CoT
1) More running this morning than usual (2.4 miles in total), but thought the beach and lake view were worth the difficult uphill climb home. Take a look here for stats courtesy of D/T (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/184289357).
2) Strong showing from Metallica this morning. Not only did he run from his house to H/T, he was reeling in Skipper on the uphill climb back from the beach.
3) Inspiration for the Man Bridge came from article about Michigan football team doing some “leadership training” with some Navy SEALs in Coronado…much to the dismay of our ND/OSU contingency (http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/7987071/michigan-wolverines-take-leadership-training-road). “Embrace the Suck” should definitely be part of the F3 Lexicon.
4) T-Claps to our FNG Brian Massey. Putting one foot in front of the other will become easier each time you join us.
5) Did not get to quite a few things on my list this morning – originally planned to divide up and Indian Run from the beach to the park entrance, and thought a good stretch from our leader would be more beneficial than a little MARY to close. But there is always next time.
