Mucka Run

Had a great run with our Muckas Running group this morning. We had about 13 members show for the run. Several new faces out there. Hoping they will stick with it. Temps were in the low 50s with a cold, stiff wind out of the North. James took off in the lead (He's only like 23 and no body fat). But, he took a wrong turn and was too far ahead for anyone to change his mind. We never saw him again. I think the coyotes got him. The rest of us (Ranging in age from 20s to 70s) continued on down Killough. Brandon was in the lead at this point. However, he decided to turn around and come back to the biggest pack of the group. This left a new member in the lead. One problem with that.....he didn't know the course. So, Brandon and I picked up the pace and caught up with him to make sure he didn't get lost. No one took the hilly part of the course today. We all stuck with the flats. Which was good.

Bradon and I finished the 3.5 miles with a sub 8 minute pace from mile 2 on. Then we went back to run in with the others. Everyone finished strong. While standing around, talking about upcoming races, Deb said she was ready to go home and get on the bike. She's an animal I tell you. She's a great motivator though. Now I have to get off my butt and knock out some P90X. Have a great day everyone. The Muckas will be running again next Saturday. Same Mucka time, same Mucka channel.
