Naked Moleskin:

It didn’t seem that muggy when we started. Evidentially it was a good morning to get wet and muddy though. I needed two towels on the way home to protect the car.

I figured Friday the 13th was a good day for a little extra fun. Boyce Park must be haunted by ghosts of inhabitants past. Pax seemed to be repetitively possessed by these souls in their sppoky mumble chatter. You had to be there to experience the true spine-tingling/bone-chilling/butt-clenching nature of such erie comments.

Bats (flying overhead) and Coyotes (at least their footprints) also joined us this morning.

A good time and hard work was had by all. Sprecial props to Baracus, Mr. Brady, and Big Top for jogging in to the workout. I noticed them walking home though.

Ha! Yeah after the beatdown needed a few minutes to catch my breath before starting the jog back. I could tell though that Baracus and Mr. Brady were itching to get going. Thought at least half dozen times about peeling off from them on the way back but the accountability kept me going – thanks fellas. Enjoyed it Shore, thanks for Q’ng.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
