The gentleman above posted a sub 7 minute mile in Death Valley this week as temperatures reached 129 degrees. http://ftw.usatoday.com/2013/07/a-guy-in-a-darth-vader-suit-ran-across-death-valley/
Not to be outdone, 23 winners showed up in the Valley for not one but two miles of humidity and PAIN.

Mosey to Lot for Mary.

We started with a nice circle to warmup only to have Yo-Yo Ma show up 30 seconds late and YHC try to decide how to keep the PAX out of his way. If you haven’t seen Yo-Yo Ma slide into a parking lot you are missing quite a bit of excitement. #themask
Quite a bit of moaning as we crushed shoulders on the warmup. The feedback did not stop when the PAX noticed the trend of exercise to failure and then run a lap. I often wonder how much we run at a workout, today left no unanswered questions there.
Props to Stagecoach, Radar, and The Hoff for rocking the rucks today. Peer pressure creates poor decisions.
Thank you guys for letting me lead and posting for what is surely to be a warmup for tomorrow’s Independence Day convergence beatdown.
Announcements: Convergence 7:00 at South Charlotte Middle, HDHH audible in effect as Bulldog and Snakebite have cleared the path for us to invade Hembsteads pool clubhouse for some Cornhole and BYOB. Bring your boards if you have some. There is a canopy if we need it and if that fails we can always head over to Vitners.
