Surprise Track Guest

Monday night at 5:15pm I was driving home and got a text from Coach Dean.  Bart Yasso was coming to track practice; did I want to go? Absolutely!  I keep running clothes and shoes in my car just for "emergency" occasions when I need to go running and don't have time to get home for running clothes.  It turns out that my friend Jason saw Bart Yasso post on Facebook that he was stuck in Phoenix due to the storms on the east coast and couldn't get home after running Hood to Coast.
Jason, jokingly asked Bart to join a track workout thinking no way would he want to run with total strangers in Phoenix heat.
Who would have guessed Bart would say Yes.  Jason picked Bart up at the hotel and we did a "short" workout (Dean's definition of short and the rest of the world's definition of short differ by about 2 miles of speedwork) 

Following track we headed to dinner and enjoyed great conversations and Bart stories.  It was such a treat meeting Bart.  I'm thankful Bart was stuck in Phoenix and Jason follows Bart on Facebook

Happy Running!
