And for a change Brian Morrison from Fleet Feet Sports was there to lead us; it was great to finally talk to 'the man'. The only thing that was not so great is Brian is a much better/faster/fitter runner than I am so his leisurely pace was a bit taxing for me. I did hang on but only because he stopped at every intersection (and there were a ton) to mark the route. I did have a highlight which was running about 95% of the De Leo wall. And we went up the steep way. A first for me.
It's funny to me that I thought Brian was a quiet guy. Not so today. :) He talked up a STORM. Blah, blah, blah Scott McCoubrey; blah, blah, blah Scott Jurek; blah, blah, blah Justin Angle; blah, blah, blah hiring at Fleet Feet Sports; blah, blah, blah the pub run. I tried to pretend we were having a conversation but really Brian was writing a novel and I was squeaking in one-word replies/prompts so that he would keep it up and not run any faster... None of what Brian said was boring and I learned a ton, I guess he loosens up quite a bit in his element.
I had a good time. Thanks Seattle Running Club.
