Thanks Horse for taking us out.

Moleskin from the perspective of The Late Show

Major Payne came to mind as we circled up for prayer. Everyone (whether spoken or unspoken) has some kind of pain going on in life. Some of the spoken pains are heavier than others, at least from the outside looking in, but the burdens we all carry are real… at least for those of us carrying them. It’s awesome to come together as brothers in Christ to sweat out some of the troubles that this broken world slings our way.

I don’t know what was going on Saturday, but I had serious shakes or whatever (not that thing HH and GJ were doing a couple weeks ago) #TMI and was laying out on the field praying someone would carry me back to my car. Solid all the way.

I’m working on FNG’s, but no success yet.

Also do we want to carpool to the Joe Davis race? I know GJ and I are in and paid. Come on Hair Band you know you want to run. 🙂

Solid all the way was a reference to the workout, not the other thing.

Great beatdown guys.

I like how Countertop said there would not be much distance running then off we run to the practice field, sprints, then indian run to back of school, then indian run back to practice field. You sit on a throne of lies. 😉

Great beatdown. Between your beatdown and the kettlebell 6AMer, I was hurting Sunday and made for an interesting run this morning.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
