Haggis was still recovering from his latest weekend race.  He reached out to LD and myself making sure we were ready to deliver pain in his absence.  Hope we did him proud.

Always great when LD leads the charge.  Indian Run with a twist was a little dangerous on the thin path at the lake, but the PAX did their best.

Welcome FNG Mariposa.  He made his mark by pulling on a tree branch in an attempt to move it for the following PAX, but it instead swatted at least 3 of them right across the chest.

As always thank you to the PAX for allowing me to lead.  I value the time we spend each morning.  Iron sharpening iron.
