Limber Moleskinne:

It was good to be back at Gumby, after an extended summer absence.  Wednesday became a rest day (sleep in) with all of the summertime BRR training.

Today marked two years of stretching and generally caring for our mobility to offset all the hard work we put in at bootcamps & running.  Parting gifts were provided to the pax, in the form of a few Nuun electrolyte samples, which, unfortunately, look like a condom package in the low light and when you don’t know what you’re being handed.  #cobains

After multiple guesses of “Pirates of the Caribbean”, Tweetsie got the win by guessing “Gladiator?” as the movie providing today’s soundtrack.  Later, a switch was made, and Tweetsie again proved his movie accompaniment prowess by naming “that 3rd Dark Knight movie” (Dark Knight Rises) as the source of the next few scores.

Based on the popping, cracking, and groans (by YHC and the pax), it seems we all needed this today.  Just as much, we (I) need the support from our (my) fellow pax, like we heard in our devotional today.   Thankful for you guys.

Aye.

It’s always nice to get presents on a birthday. Even if they are questionable.

Hard to believe it’s already been 2 years. Thanks to High Tide for Co founding #F3Gumby

And thanks for all the Pax who’ve stepped up to help Q, and continue to post regularly.

T-claps to Paper Jam for taking the idea and running with it for SOBs. #F3Pokey
