  • I appreciate the opportunity to lead.  Hope you had as much fun as I did!

Thanks for the encouragement– as someone who is still relatively new, I keep finding what I call “F3 Firsts” — my current first is “First time dealing with a lingering cough and cold.” Even though I was far from 100%, it still felt pretty good to get out and push it.

(Also, any tips from you old pros on the aforementioned “posting while dealing with sickness” would be much appreciated)

Whether it was the too-fast pre-run, the 150 swing warm-up, poor bell selection, doubles, or some combination of all that, that was rough. I felt that most of the day.
Nice lead, WD. Aye.
