Each year after the rainy season, the runners of Bekoji have to excavate their earthen track from the encroaching grasses. And much like them, WRCers have to sometimes resort to extreme measures, to recover our all-weather track from, well, all sorts of weather.
Today was very pleasant, a welcome relief at SuperWinter’s halftime, and so dozens showed up for the distance run, while others headed over to Hains Point to contest a 5K & Combine. Sadly, this coming Tuesday is going to be rather unpleasant after Monday’s blowout.
But nevertheless, the unstoppable Jesse Frantz and Hillary Tipton are leading the charge to get back to business on the track. Donning their finest ushankas and shod in supplementary YakTrax, they will clear the way for others. And I will join them in the mushy wintry twilight fun, and you should also join us there.
