Preamble: The Creek is Goose Creek’s running AO. We meet at 0500 on Mondays and Wednesdays. The route varies, as does the temperature.
This morning I arrived a few minutes early to see a few of the PAX enjoying a nice conversation in the parking lot. Marsha Marsha Marsha was back which was nice. Training Wheels was getting mentally prepared for something by listening to popular rapping artist Little John. His audio produces a fair amount of bass. So I was able to get excited from a distance of over 15 meters away. One of my headlights was burnt out. We meet in the same complex as GCPD HQ. As 500am approached car after car kept pulling in. There were a plethora of pax.

August Running Challenge: YHC invited several men to the F3 running page and encouraged them to log into the tracking sheet to track miles for the high school of their choice. Saget told me he was going to go rogue and add Berkeley. YHC chuckled.

MOLE SKEIGN! – Another solid day at the Creek. YHC is humbled by the way the GC organization has grown. Its these men holding each other accountable, plain and simple. After the completion of the run it was great to hear so many of the runners talk about their improvements and accomplishments over the last few weeks and today in particular. Some of the things I heard: Training Wheels ran a sub 7 mile, Stalker knocked out a solid 7:42 avg pace for the run, Goober ran his best avg pace yet.
