AO: Pursuit
Q: Bratwurst
PAX: Nordberg, Endo, Ghosted (Christopher Brantigan), Flip Phone, Bratwurst
FNGs: None
WARMUP: run up the Millbridge spine (the path) from the Start Point, through the playground, up past the 2nd tunnel to the end of the “south” side in a cul-de-sac. Chalk marking right (and wrong) turns. Some dynamic stretching while the six gathers.

THE THANG: Run up 5 different branches from the Spine, which is the lowest point in the neighborhood, to a point “up ahead” and then recovery run to return to the start point and let the six gather. Mosey to the next starting point.

Spine 1: Lydney to Burton Pt – 0.5mi, 62ft elevation gain, about 2.5% grade overall
Spine 2: Hudson Mill – 0.3mi, 92′ gain, 5.8% grade overall; well-known hill in Millbridge
Spine 3: Lydgate aka “Mountain Goat Exit” – 0.3mi, 74′ gain, 4.7% grade overall; seemed steepest of the morning and is a non-stop hill
Spine 4: PaperJam’s hill – 0.4mi, 78′ gain, 3.7% grade overall; took a BIG effort due to length
Spine 5: Tunnel to Gravel road – 0.4mi, 0′ gain, 0% grade overall; flat but twisty turnSSS

Regroup and recover one more time back up to Millbridge Pkwy along the gravel road, return to COT through the playground.
