12 Hills of Christmas IV

Aye, the bell rang and 23 pax posted for the fourth annual 12 Hills of Christmas, our annual fellowship-paced jaunt over the hills of Myers Park. This year, I was pleased to bring the pax of SIBling Rivalry to Converge with the speedsters of SIB.

The Thang:

A circuit through Myers Park, sprinting the 12 hills and jogging in between. Loop totaled just over 5 miles today. In order, here are the hills:

  1. Spackler’s
  2. Picardy
  3. Colony from Normandy to Arcadia
  4. Arcadia
  5. Colony, from Arcadia to Selwyn
  6. Brandywine, from Westfield to Chelsea
  7. Chelsea
  8. Wales
  9. Tranquil
  10. Hillside
  11. Student Park
  12. Colony, from the Selwyn driveway to the back entrance to the track

Spreadsheets from the Gloom:

_ I’m generally not one for dressing up or costume dramas, but this is the one F3 workout of the year that brings out my inner Reverend Flo-rida, so I donned the Santa hat.

_ Watch out for #FastJimmy. He likes to cheat the start and he’s sneaky-fast on the hills.

_ The light displays on Picardy and Hillside are always a real highlight of this run.

_ Thanks to Easy Rings for the shout-out!

_ Seems like everywhere I go in F3 Metro, Swamp Fox and Cindy are talking about F3 Honor Boxes. In this season of giving, I think it’s important not to forget those in our midst who are in need, so between now and the end of the year, I’m taking up a collection in COT to get them Honor Boxes of their own. Please reach between your sofa cushions and down into that space between the driver’s seat and the center console where the quarters and the french fries accumulate and see if you can’t make a contribution to this most worthy of causes. #Won’tYouHelp?

_ Thanks to the SIB pax for welcoming Little Brother to the Convergence.

I know I’m last on the hills, but first in your hearts,
