NOTE: Since i have mentioned characters from my weekly fun run/walk series, i thought it was best to include a weekly summary that participants receive. Please note the series takes place weekly on Thursday after school and is approximately 3.25 miles in length.

Bridging the Gap…..
Dirt Dawg eagerly awaits Twinkle Toes to get out of meeting to begin fun run. Also notes that J-No is stuck in meeting as well.
D.D. entertains thoughts of running by himself :(
D.D. begins doing push-ups in parking lot.
D.D. runs back to building and sees Huff N Puff J. Coerces him into cutting short his warm-up and begin running. H N P states that he won’t be able to keep up but D. D. tells him not to worry, this is a FUN RUN and has to take it easy for he has a marathon this weekend www.martianmarathon.com (YES, THIS IS A SHAMELESS PLUG)
While D.D. and H N P were swapping stories about their Glory Days
Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days
D.D. I spied Twinkle Toes attempting to bridge the gap.
Bridge: When a lone rider or smaller group of riders closes up the space between them and the rider or group in front of them. Most notably when riders catch up with the main pack (or peloton) of riders or those who are leading the race.
After successfully making the jump, T.T. stated that it was good practice for his upcoming race weekend, and left Huff N Puff to pontificate on his own “What is fun about this?”
Citing muscular strains and fatigue from aerobic squats, Vanna White sat out and left J-NO and Abstract to ramble the course in 52 minutes tying a previous course record!!
