Larry “The Dead Jock”

9 Jan

Does anyone know who I am talking about already?

I have to start by saying I don’t typically stray from my favorite spin classes very often. I know my instructors. I like my instructors. I like their music. I know it will be a good work out!! I was in a bit of a bind tonight and decided to go to my “secondary” gym where a guy named Larry taught the 6:00 PM class.

I walked in and there was a guy that looked like one of the Dead Jocks In a Box from The Hood To Coast Movie. I haven’t seen the movie in a while but I was pretty sure he was one of the main guys from that team. I quickly learned that he was our instructor “Larry”. He came over and introduced himself and the conversation went like this:
Me: Hi I’m Leslie. Are you one of the Dead Jocks?
Larry: Yes
Me: Do you get that a lot??
Larry: In the first couple of years yes but not a lot any more. I was up at Leif(a running trail) the other day and a guy recognized me there too!

He went on to tell me that he has done all 33 Hood To Coast‘s. I couldn’t believe it but then thought later–I thought last year was only the 31st year?? He was super nice. The class was good but not as hard as Joey’s!! I would definitely go back. He had good music and was very enthusiastic.

We talked a little at the end of class as well. I said that I was going to try to get on the Nuun Hood To Coast team this year and He said GO FOR IT!!

Has anyone NOT SEEN the movie? it is a good movie even if you are not a runner!

    A very dear friend of mine compared my class to a member of the “Dead Jocks” – a troupe of hardcore Hood to Coast runners – class. I’ll let her words speak for themselves.
