Well it was the first q since the new board came on at Hydra. Lots of texting yesterday from Gummy asking me waaaaay too many questions. Calm down, it’s going to be fine. Got up early this morning in excitement and decided to try some new areas. I get tired of Summerlin and the rock work sometimes so it’s good to change it up. Thunder Road is a tracker, if you lose something reach out to him and he will find it. That was a strong find today man. One eye and sprockets decided to partner up, which makes sense because they are the fastest out there so no one could keep up. Lots of complaining coming out of everyone when the merkins/CDD/light pole call was made. It’s swimsuit season, your wives/girlfriends/whatever will be impressed with you not having the “dad bod”. Sleepy made it out, great seeing you and welcome back. HIPAA and one eye ran in, that seemed excessive, we did about 3.5 miles today, sorry about that. Not a mountain of chatter out there to note but please sound off. I’m excited to hear. Announcements – Brewery race/drinking/uber/limebike coming up. Get on Slack or pester Gummy Prayers being lifted for Red Rocks and Family.

Run back to launch
Mole of skin
Well, lots of texts and discussions last night about the rain. Full disclosure didn’t want to really run a ton in the rain but this morning it was fairly dry. HIPAA of course jinxed it when he got out of the car talking about the lack of rain. #amateurmove. The run over to the other side was dry when we passed by a very confused security guard. The call for partner work was received with skepticism from Alf. I did have to alter my plan because that hill was looooong. After that and the 7’s we found some cover and decided to do the 30 each of dips, derkins, and step ups. Again lots of bad looks. Not gonna lie mid-way through I was rethinking it but decided to roll forward. The last portion was fun, rock work and running, the 150 each was a bit aggressive and there was a few bad looks there as well (seeing a trend). I kept asking HIPAA how many miles to see if we could get to three at least to not get made fun of by the fast-twitch crew. Good group of men out there, thanks for the opportunity to lead. Haze thanks for taking us out. Of

Wow. Honored for the number of guys to come out to my q. I am assuming they thought it was going to be easy and sadly it probably was. Agony brought out the tank top and wouldn’t stop making fun of me, made me feel really good, he was wearing a weight vest and kept complaining about the Merkins – Stop Running so much and do something else.
Swiper and Kirk wouldn’t stop talking the entire time with the exception of Kirk’s trip to the portojohn that’s been there for at least 6 years and never been cleaned. Don’t worry he missed the 11’s.
Crawfish brought a clown car with him. Good to see you man, the last time we saw each other was at a burn bootcamp with our wives that we promised…..we….would…never….talk…about….again……………………sorry about that.
Speaking of complaining. Hannibal was upset for all of the 11’s. Very angry and kept staring at me. I was thinking about an audible but Agony and Aquafresh talking me out of it.
Made our way back to launch and that was all. Also Blackjack’s parking job was terrible.

A tremendous amount of mumblechatter and a lot of complaining……mainly from Spackler. I decided to keep the mileage down some and get some good upper body work in. The run up and back while the other partner was doing merkins was awful. It was great seeing all the guys pushing it out there. Humidity was more like 1000% and I don’t believe I cooled off until noon. I got a text from Hops last night about the backblast because he is stalking twitter now. Sorry, had to go make it happen and didn’t get home until late last night. No chance of that happening. Good group for sure and lots of sports talk, soccer, football, etc…. I’m just happy that College football is starting so I have a reason to sit at the lodge for 4 hours on Saturday night. Champagne actually paid me a compliment. I mean it was almost a compliment but the nicest thing I have ever gotten from him so there’s that.
Also I have the list of everyone that came but the fast-twitch boys are sprinkled in and it’s hard to separate out who was where. Apologies.

Soupy start to a Wednesday out there. I got up early to scope out the track but it was too wet and looked for another area. Remembered a q of mine from several years ago which I believe Puddin mentioned was the last time I was at Death Valley. Dollywood and Header got there early for a business meeting and were clearly upset with me listening in #insidertrading. I thought it was only going to be the 3 of us but the rest of the group got there just in time. Was great seeing Schmedium, Jet Fuel, Mermaid and Utah out there. I haven’t posted in a while because of various Ailments but it was nice. Saw the donut run guys who really need to eat something, those guys look hungry, grab some wings boys, throw some ranch on it. Mermaid and I walked through my entire bathroom renovation so I feel good about that. He is driving to Tennessee for a workout tomorrow (okay it’s only mountain island lake but it might as well be). All around solid group, Jet Fuel and Puddin were carrying on like a bunch of highschool kids. The Rock work was funny. I haven’t done the rotate in while, it’s a good one especially for the guys picking smaller rocks. The failure thing was awful, Bad mistake on my part. Dollywood and Header had to leave early for Business. Sorry guys. Just wanted to hear the intellectuals talk. Lastly, my shoes appear to be not red but pink. Yahtzee.

Moleskin – Good group out there today, on a chilly Monday morning. Saw some people I haven’t seen in many years and some guys that I have not had the chance to meet. It has probably been 2 years since I have been at that site, the Davie run was long but good. Not a ton of mumblechatter nor really anyone chatting at all. It might have been the wind or the fact that it’s April and still cold. Nevertheless we pushed through and the men are all better for it. Mall Cop called for the semi-gloss near the bathrooms and it took me back to old times. I miss the site, I miss the guys that I started with and have fallen out of touch with. It’s also great to see new guys coming out and pushing themselves.
Nothing much to report.
Donut run was long
Swampy Hot day upon us
I did backblast yay!
No one wanted the backblast so here you go. Many different routes and miles. Swiper got left a 4:45. Other funny things happened. Show to know.
10 men arrived in a parking lot…they ran whatever route they wanted…they drank coffee.

Sorry for the delay boys – Been a busy week.
I read through all of the backblast’s and didn’t see any mention of this side of Stonecroft. Apparently we needed to be quiet due to the fact that they had fancy houses. Good running by all, was great to see everyone really pushing to get better. BRR/Marathons/ETC/RAces are in season so we will be doing miles a large amount of the workouts. 3.5 ish today. Good stuff.

Was curious how many guys would be out this am considering that it was presidents day, I was leading and it was a bit chilly. Regardless we had 12 strong pax out. I got up this am around 4 to write my weinke for the first time in 4 years #yahtzee, even went out there early to get a lay of the land and make sure the rocks were still there behind the school. Apparently there is another workout called ——- Gladiator (can’t remember) and the guy must have thought I was going to run off with his weights because he followed me out.
Kirk showed up in a goalie outfit so there’s that. Thankful for Steinbrenner for the time keeper award. Silent Bob made me think about the Gladiator show on USA back in the day when the contestants would try and make it through the obstacle course. The pay to play folks didn’t have that much stuff but it was intimidating especially with the Techno music blaring.
Every guy out there was really pushing themselves and it was great to see. Got to see some new faces and some guys I haven’t seen in a while. DMZ is always a great workout and AO.
Also don’t ask Runstopper to do Mary, he turns everything into Merkins. My arms hurt.
SG – OUT
