  • Great work by the PAX today, everyone was pushing it. A simple weinke was in order putting the boot camp back into the workout.
  • YHC showed up today greeted by Site Q Emeritus Fireman Ed, when I informed him I had the Q he said something to the effect “good, not a lot of running’, well we managed to get 2.6 miles in anyway.
  • Cheese Curd chose Base Camp over DMZ thinking we wouldn’t run much either, according to Strava we did a bit more than their 2.4 miles.
  • Learned that Cheese Curd completed 3 legs of Ragnar, over 2 years. This year might be the year he does them all in the same event.
  • Insomniac is getting sneaky fast.
  • Cheese Curd and Fireman Ed were #LarryBird at the 7s on Coburn.
  • YHC received a back-handed compliment from Cheese Curd, which is a compliment in any manner.
  • YHC kidded Costanza that I was glad he was there so I wasn’t War Daddy, but the guy keeps getting stronger and has come a long way since he started. Keep it up.
  • Thanks to Goonie, Thunder Road, and Benny for the opportunity to lead
