  • Just coming off IR from post-marathon recovery, needed to stretch the legs a bit today
  • Put the pre-tweet warning out about “Derby Special”, yet still heard complaints (and not just from Pot Tart).  Not sure what folks were expecting when a racing horse emoji is included in the pre-tweet.    Maybe folks thought it meant I was taking bets after COT?
  • Anyway, went well getting to see most of the surrounding area in Matthews.  Maybe next time we’ll make it downtown.
  • Great to see all the young bucks out there (and the veterans – F3_Cage #respect).  Been a while since I’ve been to Kevlar with all the ^&%#%@!#@@@!! marathon training the past few months.  Great to be back.
  • Fault Line and Orange Whip – Appreciate the opportunity to take the Q
  • Derby Pick:  My Boy Jack to Show



  • Volunteer Opportunity at Christ Covenant Church tomorrow (Saturday) 9am-1pm – help with landscaping for butterfly garden, particularly moving mulch and other materials.    See Paper Jam for details
  • Beer Mile, Friday March 11, evening, at a local track.  See slack channel and Pop Tart for details.
