AO:  BombSquad

Conditions: 64 degrees, perfect

5:14 – One Minute Warning

5:15 – Proper Disclaimer

This is the last Beatdown at BombSquad  for 2021. It was an honor to be asked to Q such a historic event so YHC wanted to make it memorable for everyone who posted! The plan was simple . . .run!!! Run with interspersed exercises along the way to catch our breath. Then run some more.

When YHC arrived, 3 Pax were already congregated at the Shovel Flag. There was Beef Steak (AOQ); Doughboy (taking mental notes for his VQ next month); & Kaiser (DR Pax, Doughboy’s Brother who’s becoming a regular at BS). The one minute warning was given as ERC (Triathlete, runner, & closet Patriots fan) arrived.  This looked like everyone for the day that was brave enough to post after my not so subtle twitter message (threat) (“Bring your running shoes ‘cause that’s what we’re gonna do!”)

As we prepared to run, there came a low rumble out of the southwest as a familiar truck without a muffler raced down Carolina Forest Blvd! As the truck (fully loaded with some form of shrubbery and/or flowers) rumbled into the AO, we began SSH, until our beloved brother, Rubber (sporting a racing beanie and short shorts) joined us. Then we were off into the Gloom because if you want to get there from here you gotta get going!!

NOTE: Sing a few verses of the Humpty Dance in your head then read this BackBlast quickly to get a sense of the the pace we had this morning!

NMMS: The numbers: 2.63 miles; 20:47 moving time; 7:53 pace (per Strava). We were running/ moving only 50% of the workout, the other 50% was for exercises.  So Beef Steak was correct in his assessment that we had a sub 7 minute pace! That was an awesome push today by everyone! This was definitely a 2% better beatdown! It was an honor to lead.
