A balmy (positive single digits) MLK Day saw 6 PAX (Archive, Banks, Ship Lap, TBTF, Gummi Bear, Capn Crunch) looking for a good scenic hike. A nice 3 mile loop through Lincoln Marsh and back to the AO was selected and they were off.
The weekend snow had frozen hard so ankles we’re looked after, opting to keep the heavy shuffle portions to the first and last miles where pavement was plentiful. The scenic middle mile had lots of crunchy, lumpy snow (our fate for the foreseeable future). Solid mile times meant getting 3 miles in 40 minutes, arriving back at the AO just in time after a slightly delayed start. Good conversation and good exercise in the same heavy breath.
Prayers for a good start to the week, good time at home, health and intentionality as we get into the groove for the year.
But wait, there’s more!
Archive, TBTF and Crunch saw everyone off and then set off on an EC ruck on loop #2, heading on a wide perimeter around the outside of the park to Main St., Cole, Morse, and then back in. The way was treacherous and lumpy most of the time so we made slow progress and cancelled the planned mini ruck PT session in favor of a prompt return to breakfast with family.
