It was the last Thursday Track workout of the summer as Jim Myers, John Domico, Bob Jones, Lance Bland, Tom Cali, Jim Moore, Marty Klanchar, Tom Hilands, Ken Davis, Bob Cornwall, George Lesieutre, Ruth Mick, Beth Herndon, Mark Lee, Jamie Volkert, Michael Goldfine, John Wilcock, Ann Skulas-Ray, Cheryl Keller Capone, Sam Thompson, Joe Bollinger, and Marty Mazur under a blue sky with light breezes blowing puffy clouds around.
As this is the week where Fall links up with Summer, Bwana gave out the Teamwork 800s workout. That's where a pair of similarly-abled runners will do 800 where they are together for 400 and each rests while the other is doing the other half. It's easier to do than explain, unless you're Ruth and Beth, who teamed up to do 8X800. Each. Most of the other trackers did 4X800.
We had a number of "differently-abled" runners teaming up to stay away from the track today. Tara Murray was running a backhoe and 'dozer, increasing the grade out on Legs 8 and 9 for tonight's Tussey Run. Her Hillness just doesn't think three's enough fun in running the two flattest legs of the relay tonight. Sherry Tirko was sharpening her bowling ball so she can pick up the 7-10 split she left last week. Vicki Summers was sitting around thinking of how she is going to respond to the Thursday Track email without getting on Bwana's radar screen for never coming to the track. And Greg Luna was working on sketches for the Cool Beans Team Tattoo!
