Another cool morning in the gloom! Disclaimer given although practically no one was listening. Got on at 302 TH at 0530 sharp with 6 PAX for the round trip!
You may ask, is it smart to run after donating blood?🩸 my short answer is, maybe not. Definitely was a challenge. It was like the opposite of going to Flagstaff for a month of elevation training! Whew… yes, more RBC’s are better than less RBC’s! We made it around 302 in a steadish… Blazer thinking (slow) pace. YHC was definitely huffing and puffing to get up sections which typically are not that difficult. We made it round as a unit in 1:09. Discussions occurred about next CSAUP…, Setting Maricopa Trail relay record? Doing a Rim-to-rim adventure? Both options are on the table. Blazer to look into Maricopa Trail and Choo Choo to R2R. Also discussed supporting a local food bank!
Countarama and namearama! No burpees for yours truly as I recalled my new age! Last run for a while for Timber as he is off to Dubia. Wishing for his family’s safe travel and return. We went around the circle to give prayer intentions by each Pax. Everyone gave a prayer intention and lifted something up. Amen!
