As far as we understand, once a year during indoors, the GBTC does a casino themed workout. The variables of the workout are determined by chance. According to Matt Haringa, itâ€™s the “best workout of the year.” This year, Tom Derderian was rolling a ten sided die (pictured below, courtesy of Tom).
Those hoping for something garish, like a big riverboat roulette wheel didnâ€™t quite have their expectations met but it looks like fun was had anyway.
Of the workout, Tom said: “the complete racer needs to be prepared for unpredictable moves by an adversary so we run a workout where the next interval is not on a schedule but is determined by chance. It is very Ecclesiastical. Â It is life. It is racing.”
Before we move on from the Jones 10 Miler completely, we have two more thoughts on this.
A.) Joe Navas submitted this pic to illustrate just how ridiculously over-sized the race bibs were. Itâ€™s his bib on an oak floor with one of those big, soft pretzels (like youâ€™d get at a mall food court) right next to it.
