The fall weather makes for great conditions for the work we do.  Strong group of men this morning to cover 2.66 total miles.  T-claps to Cane for collecting data.  Sacagewea, Checkpoint, Bushwood, Hannibal were pushing the 5 lap set pace with Sacagewea taking ownership.  Strong work by all pax on this set.  Welcome to Grease Monkey who completed his 2nd F3 workout and was site FNG.  Welcome back to Sunrise.  3 weeks on the couch with a broken toe.  Glad to have you back brother.  Been missing the mumblechatter.   Several members of the pax demonstrated blazing speed on the sprints.  Too many Larry Birds to remember.  Brushback was flying as he noted he was trying to keep up with Sacagewea.  YHC took group out in BOM.  A pleasure and privilege, as always, to lead at Centurian.

Congrats to Checkpoint.  Not only does he always push the pace in workouts at 53 years of age, his F3 Metro Mud Run team finished #12 overall.  Respect.

Centurion in good hands (maybe better) when site Q’s are out. Great job leading.

Hate missing it. Ankle is healing quickly, hope to be back in the gloom very soon.

Strong Q Mermaid! Enjoyed the smokefest. Great combo of cardio and strength training, and it was always moving. I echo the sentiment on Checkpoint; true example of fit for life. And all you can say is Sacagawea is a beast. Keep posting and helping to push the pax. We’re all getting stronger day by day.
