Moleskin: It felt so good.
Moleskin: It felt so good.
Temp: a brisk low 70s
Humdity: Less than it’s been
Warm-up: dropping a deuce before leaving the house
The Thang: We had runners, we had a biker, we had ruckers led by Cadre C. Slicker.
Moleskin: KY is never leaving. He loves us too much. Welcome FNG Richard Ringler, now known as Mr. Burns.
Warm-Up: Warming up is for the leftovers and romantic evenings
The Thang: Turns out this was just the Alson loop with a little extra around the train tracks. It was less creative than YHC thought.

Weather: 76 degrees
Humidity Level: Satan’s irritating sister-in-law
Warm-up: stepping out the car
The Thang: Pax were told to pick their group: the rabbits (run 9:30 or longer) or the foxes (run 9:30 or faster). The rabbits did the standard stadium loop. If you don’t know what that is, then you need to be coming to Tremor more often. The foxes started by running around the tennis courts of Doty then started the stadium loop. When rounding the stadium, instead of turning right on Main street, cross over Main and add a little extra distance in the neighborhood. This puts you back out a little bit down Main by Rollings Middle School. Then continue back to the AO.
Moleskin: YHC played with this route recently and thought it’d be a nice motivator for the pax of Tremor to push themselves a little regardless of the group they were in. The downside for YHC was a watch update yesterday that reset his preferences on his watch. This took away some key datapoints like pace. It’s scientifically proven that one cannot run without at least 7 datapoints available at all times. Look it up. That plus the return of the humid weather plus running with the fast foxes took a toll, so there was walking involved, and I’m ok with it. Any how, everyone returned in good times. If you’ve been a part of Muscadine Q you know that it can pay to be a winner. Today, YHC had a variety of olive oils, olives, balsamic, and more in his trunk. Don’t ask questions. Well, everyone did so great that they got to take some home and try to explain to their S.O. why they left to run and returned with olive oil. Good luck.
Conditions: High 70s
Humidity: The fold behind Satan’s knee
Warm-up: See above
The Thang: 13 runners, 6 ruckers, 0 bikers. Miles were had
Moleskin: I like french fried taters.
Conditions: low 70s:
Moleskin: It’s been a while since YHC has done a BC Q. The creative juices were drying up and I just needed a break. Once YHC decided to jump back in it was good to see the juices were flowing again. Wanted to try some new ideas that haven’t been seen before or rarely. Because of the competition there was a lot of good smack talk and mumble chatter. Man, I love F3.
Devo: God doesn’t tempt you, Satan does. Satan wants to 1) distract you, 2) discredit you, and if those doesn’t work, then he’ll just try to 3) destroy you. Know your weakness. Guard your heart. Be accountable.
Conditions: 49.7 F. Clear.
Warm-up: SCS/Seismic/car heater
The Thang: Presidents Circle
Moleskin: Today was our monthly running of the Richter. No one felt like going fast. We just wanted miles, so YHC called an audible and we did Presidents Circle. On the way back, Hollywood, Old Flame, and YHC were running my Mr. K’s when a driver turned into the parking lot coming very close to killing our dear Hollywood. He said he saw the car which is really worse because he kept going. Old Flame and I came to a screeching halt with our cat-like reflexes, and yelled to draw attention away from the murder of our brother and onto the driver. We are heroes and Holly is alive.
Conditions: Muggy and misty. mid 60s
Warm-up: see Conditions. It was warm enough.
The Thing: The Pax ran together over by Saul Alexander Park, where YHC noticed a speed detector this weekend. We each took turns trying to see if we could get the detector to pick us up during a sprint and how fast we could go. After getting an initial speed, we did a lap around the block and tried again. Max speeds by Floppy and Myrtle at 15 MPH, while Bellator was too ninja-like that it couldn’t even detect him.
Moleskin: Jolly good.
Quote of the Day: “Maybe I shouldn’t be yelling.” Bellator, as he yells at the detector which is located right outside 3 houses.
Conditions: high 40s
Warm-up: any farting your did in your car before getting out
The Thang: Run to the first cross street and turn left NASCAR style, and continue to do so around the block until you get to the start. Keep going, but this time go up to the 2nd cross street. Keep growing your route until you hit the train tracks, then starting bringing the route back down.
Moleskin: It was good to see some of the Goose Creek Pax in the ‘ville (Snowden and Stringbean sans ruck). As always, it’s great running with Peg, Bellator, and Myrtle.
Devo: Priorities are what you give your time and energy to. That can be good or bad. Think about what you give your time and energy to. Is it worth it?
Quote of the Day: “This is not an approved Tremor route.” –Pretzel
Conditions: 50 and breezy
Warm-up: A lot of hot air talking before we started
The Thing: 3 different routes on the President’s Circle loop.
Moleskin: The route given was the President’s Circle loop, but no clear path on that route. 3 different groups went 3 different ways. That’s ok, everyone did all of the miles.
