Urgency and Sweet Tunes at the Brave

YHC has a mostly love and slight hate relationship for 60 cent Thursday wing night at the joint around the corner.  Bowels may be kind or revolt in the gloom.  After exiting the Jeep YHC got slammed with the need to visit the Marathon station with great urgency.  Fire Hazard called upon to run the group down that way to link up after a visit with Mr. Brown.  Explosive, swift relief allowed the Q to get back to the corner to assume the Q.  Probably TMI, but accurate chronicling is one important goal of a good backblast.  9 men set off to get some work done.

A few cars pulled into the parking lot during COP.  Doors opened and several men began getting out and gearing up to build something.  Latin music played loudly.  Sweet tunes for our COP.  Strong group today that clipped 5.14 miles per the Garmin with a bunch of strength and core exercises mixed in.  Felt pretty good to YHC.  Kotters to Mic Check.  Same to Brushback who has been on a slight running hiatus.  Really enjoyed this workout with this group.  Thanks for the opportunity to lead.  Great work today.  T-claps to Frehley’s for the takeout prayer.

Great Q today Mermaid. I am still feeling it. The setup was perfect. It allowed all the pax to push hard, but kept the group together.
