The Run - practice for Tough Mudder *Sunday*

What up bros and girls?! After some flim-flammery, we're back on for SUNDAY at 1pm for The Run (for the uninitiated, see Link's type up below). Plenty of run/fun to be had, so sign up and get your run on again. We'll be hitting the pavement at 1:10p on ze button. Dress appropriately. Contact Dylan if you're gonna be late for the start time. Protip: if you're warm at the start of the Run, you're gonna overheat. See y'all on Sunday!

This group is dedicated to The Run. You do not need to be signed up for, or even interested in, Tough Mudder to participate in The Run. The Run is about 6.5 miles and has 14-18 bridges. Every time you cross a bridge, it's time for pushups! (or burpees, or standing push-ups, or some other upper-body exercise of your choice). Pick how many you can do. It can be 1, it can be 20 per bridge...it's up to you. The goal is to set it to a number where you "barely won't be able to finish 17 reps without rest".

The Run is just the way everyone likes it: long and hard. As such, please do make sure to take time to stretch afterwards and take care of yourself. Six miles and hundreds of push-ups is no joke!

If you know the route feel free to charge ahead, but let's not get too spread out. If you're not sure where to turn, don't guess and get others lost. Wait for someone who knows the route, there are likely to be several regulars. Please don't let anyone fall off the back of the pack. If you are second from last, and don't hear footsteps behind you, slow down and wait. We'll likely have a leader, a middle runner and somebody bringing up the end of the pack.

This is the basic route, though there are a few variations/additions depending on how you feel at the end: http://files.meetup.com/1185092/The_Run_1.1.pdf Total distance can be 2 to 6.5 miles.

All skill levels are welcome. There are several turnoffs and alternate routes. Links will be posted. We meet at the Kerrytown Markets and Shops in Ann Arbor (for now) just inside the door to Sweetwaters Cafe at 1:00 every Sunday. After, we will likely head to some form of food place for restocking/refueling.
