BRC Run – 08/17 – 0645 – Pippa – 11.2 mi [BORDER]
The Days are Getting Shorter
As I prepared for a short run this morning, I was struck by the fact that I must have rolled out of bed an hour earlier than I thought. Then through the haze of my old-man eyes, I made out the digits on my watch. Nope. I was right on time. What had happened to the light? You all know the answer. Our beloved 0500 weekday runs are now “night” runs. I guess we’re in that awkward time between bright mornings and cool lunchtime workouts. Sigh. In any event, the chase is still on to complete your borders before the induction on August 27th. Since we haven’t received ANY requests for borders, I’m just going to hit border runs until we get to the Induction night. This week, it’s Middleton. https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/26971654/
Continue to enjoy the 4th of July (I guess we’re well past the 40th of July by now) and run the traditional 5K route: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/167577564/
ATTENTION PLEASE, WE (STILL) HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT
We’ve got a BRC Induction coming up. Frank sent out the notice that we have three new BRC members, then Sydney finished her borders last Saturday to make it four. (Great work Sydney!) Is anyone else working to get done with their borders? Note that this will be the first induction that includes an optional group run beforehand. The run starts at 6:45, and is “only” 3 miles. Great RTB training. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, August 27th at Rolf’s. Wear your dress whites/greys. Come celeberate the accomplishments of our newest family members Leslie, Steve, John, and Sydney.
132. Leslie Allen
133. Steve LeCours
134. John McGuiggin
135. Sydney O’Neil
Also, whoever has the book, make sure to bring it.
Any RWOB who is close to finishing his borders please let me know which one(s) you are missing. It might get fortuitously and coincidentally scheduled before the Induction night. We almost NEVER open up for requests.
· Tuesday — BRC Weekly 5K

Celeberate – It’s still a thing. I think if I use it enough, Webster might cite it for “common usage.”
