I’m 100% certain that if the wind had magically shifted from out of the south to out of the north when each of us reached the turnaround point, there would have been 17 PRs tonight. Alas, only Joe Laviolette beat his time, and by a whopping 18 seconds!

For those who gave me only their Strava times, after careful analysis, a bit of voodoo and a consultation with my Magic 8 Ball, I decided to add 13 seconds to your time. Sorry, not negotiable at this point. Use a real timer in the future if you feel aggrieved.

We also saw a return from our old pal Scott who travelled north (wind aided??) from GA to open a big can of WHOOP ASS on us. He scorched the out and back and it was nice to get a little reminder of his Scott-esque personality.

Here is a link to the series so far:
