Mosey to COT


YHC wasn’t sure how many would post with the wintry weather and the Goruckers resting up for the big challenge.  Ultimately 14 showed with the late-arriving Harley who said he had no idea the weather was supposed to be wintry….excuse? #Epstein’sMother.  Escargot seems to be a natural QIC and will certainly be a success at the eventual launch of another SCLT site at Charlotte Catholic (stay tuned).  Escargot’s introduction of the partner muscle-up’s was met with some groans and mumblechattering – unsavory!  The wheelbarrows across the parking lots were no easy task either.  The modified SheHateMe was not a fan favorite of the pax.  Rockhoppers are more painful than they first appear –  aye!  Avoided NorthFace today, but we’ll hit that again soon men.

In the COT – FNG Peach Fuzz made the fateful mistake of telling the pax his college nickname…thus the nickname Peach Fuzz.  But T-claps to him for posting on a morning like this while in town for business.  Good luck and God’s blessings as you launch a site in the greater Atlanta area brother!  Come back and join us soon.


Continue to remember and pray for The Shore and his family at the passing of his father.  And lift up our Gorucking brothers as they embark tonight on a significant challenge.

Sign up for Spartan!  Pay for bus & vittles for MudRun – and order your raceshirts today = last day!

Serve well men.  “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends” John 15:13

Another quality workout at The Rock in the snowy gloom! The wheel barrow across the parking lot was unsavory as well as the modified #shehateme! The core is feeling great with all the Mary that we did! Aye!
