14 Pax enjoyed the humid start to Global Running Day. We also celebrated the 5050 burpee challenge, and Dr. Phil’s birthday. Mostly, I was just celebrating being back to Local Honey as I have been out of town on Wednesdays for way too long. With no FNG’s, we had a short disclaimer and moseyed on a round a bout route to the corner of Market and Greene street for the warm-o-rama…the Pax began questioning my route plan but we made it – needed the extra distance…

Most Pax made it through the cycle with some getting in a few more blocks. It was a great effort by all as we ran 2.8 miles on my watch.

Back to the shovel flag for Mary


We did the five minute plank-o-rama that everyone always requests. Then we tried a new exercise that YHC found on the internet, doesn’t have name yet but will be coming back! We finished out with 20 American Hammers IC.


Woody led us out in a ball of man. Thanks for your good words.


Happy Hour tonight at Tap Room, 5:30 or so. Pax seemed ready after the workout today…

Dr. Phil will be traveling for the next four weeks, please keep him and his family in your prayers.

Daisy’s brother is moving out of the country and Daisy is buying his business. It will become a non-profit. They make nutritious smoothies and are located next to Jersey Mike’s on State Street. Check it out.

Q’s are needed at Uptown Funk and Local Honey. Please step up and Q or co-Q.

It was my honor to lead this morning. Thank you for the opportunity and thanks for the strong work this morning.
