2017-12-29 - Scull or Sweep

~4.8 mi @ ~9.8 min/mi

"Scull or Sweep?" Caitlin asks, re rowing as depicted in the romantic comedy film Must Love Dogs. She explains some of the finer points of crew and racing shells during mile 4 of today's trek. Temps are in the upper teens and our pace is similarly brisk as the Dawn Patrol Duo follows neighborhood streets to the Bethesda Trolley Trail, missing a turn in the dark along the way and circling back.

"Maybe 'Fast' is your trigger word?" After complaining of hamstring twinges somebody says, "So we shouldn't go too fast!" - and then, according to Cait, we speed up. Oops! And later, at the office locker room post-shower he discovers that he's forgotten his pants. Oops! Fortunately black running tights suffice on a pre-holiday Friday. One friend notices, and laughs.
