On a cool Memorial Day morning 9 fellow pax whipped the fartsack to join YHC at the Quaker Crater AO for a Natville Memorial Day Convergence of 3 different workouts.  YHC was excited to Q again after limiting posts the past 2 weeks to stay healthy enough to run a half marathon this past Saturday #AgeIsCatchingUpWithMe

It was great to see some old faces and some new ones as well.  The hour later start time seemed to be appreciated by the pax as well.

Here’s what went down (more or less)….
