The Thang

  • Ruckers hiked to Bennett’s Creek Park and did a lap of the loop prior to returning to Creekside Elementary School
  • Runners ran to Bennett’s Creek Park and assembled at the top of the loop
    • YHC explained the “demoralizer” – an exercise so unnerving that it comes from an unknown PAX of yore and has not been repeated to YHC’s knowledge in many, many months
    • Each PAX had the opportunity to sprint on their own clockwise around the loop trying to catch the other PAX – who were also running clockwise around the loop
    • Despite the other PAX moseying at a somewhat leisurely pace, this required the sprinting PAX expend a significant amount of energy to catch them; usually, this took about two laps around the loop – which seemed to be growing each lap
  • Runners then ran back to Creekside Elementary School
