No FNGs (Dear Abby was a site FNG) so off we went.

Quick mosey up by CVS and by two of the Stonehenge Christmas trees waiting to be decorated.

Continue mosey up Ballantnyne Commons Parkway to the Premier deck – throw in a little back and forth hill runs to warm up the legs.

Total distance = 5.03 miles covered with lots of other fun stuff thrown in – solid work by all today.


Not much mumblechatter today, everyone was getting after it. The AYG ramp runs with burpees is a most unsavory way to start a workout.

It’s an honor to lead such a great group of men. Thank you for the privilege.
