Details are hazy

I had a pretty bad run of not writing backblasts and my conscious has finally taken over. Typically I’d done them within a few hours but like anything, you start slacking a little then you start slacking a lot. Food, laziness, whatever your vice. I have many. Rhapsody has more.


Last Friday’s Kevlar was a good burn with a better group of guys that deserves to be published.

Busch and Rhapsody talked endlessly – well anyone running with Busch talked endlessly. It took some serious running to wear them out a bit.


Drive By changed jobs and now spends his mornings with us – he always did in the summer as a teacher but it’s good to see him back in the rotation.


Christmas is becoming a Kevlar regular and was moving fast all morning.


I knew Cage had an injury earlier this year and as a Respectful mid-50 year old he always impresses me. He stayed with it even though we had a long run in.


Witch Doctor just got back from Italy and got engaged there – happy for him for the next stage in his life.


4 of us made it to Mancave – led by Busch after the workout.
