*Today was YHC’s first QIC in the Southlands.  Still learning names and faces.  Missing one… post in comments to receive full credit.

*Arrival times are telling:  First to arrive this morning was Boots (FNG, EH’d by Dora, with noteworthy footwear).  Arrived in plenty of time, wondered where the PAX parks and what he was getting into.  2nd to arrive was YHC, Q’ing for the first time in the Southlands.  Rest of PAX came streaming in in JIT fashion.

*Diamonds — always have been, and likely always will be, a smoker for YHC. 

*Noteworthy performance by Dolphin — on the AMRAP session he was flying on the run segment.  And, yes that was with a ruck.  Form was questionable.  Dredd-esque chicken wing arms in full effect.

Strong work out there today, men.

Highlight of the morning was definitely the voice I heard behind me shouting “man up” and “move faster.” Glad Dolphin was only focused on “motivating” himself (which in turn got the rest of us moving even faster as well). Strong work, my friend.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
