PAX entered the Gloom, which wasn’t super gloomy outside of a decent amount of wind. The sun is steadily creeping out earlier these days. Alas, we were not sure if headlamps would be required. To be safe, YHC took one. It wasn’t needed, ha!

OYO stretching while YHC described the agenda: given the recent rain a section of the trails was still closed, so without the extra mileage available, YHC decided to add in merkins!! 100 merkins is the same amount of points as 1 mile run in our #F3MayChallenge…hmmmm….math??


PAX ran a total of 4+ miles over the ridge, around Pineridge Reservoir and back. Every ~0.5 miles, PAX earned the opportunity to complete 25 merkins.
Along the way, 2 runners were met and they were most kind in returning our Good Morning! Per new AO rules, burpees are only collected when a good morning greeting is NOT returned. So…no bonus merkin points (a burpee is really an advanced merkin in disguise!).

4 miles + 200 merkins = 600 challenge points earned!!

People are so friendly, there wasn’t anything to do, so we stretched OYO.

Friday, 5/10, celebrate Flo’s birthday at Timnath Beerwerks. Check slack for details.

Praise and Glory to God for such a fine morning and blessings to all PAX!
