Great group out there today as always.  This was my second of two Q’s over the past 5 days. I’ve been thoroughly congratulated and chastised at the same time for leading the group through 5 miles at RockZero on Saturday.  I teased that we’d try to hit that mark in today’s 45-minute Hydra. No way. Geraldo would’ve expelled me from Area 51. I think we got in at least 3 miles though.  

Some observations: Not sure anyone actually caught their partner on the CMIYC.  Spackler made fun of me for running too slow on the CMIYC. I didn’t have a partner to catch so I was just running slow and steady (if you can’t Q it, don’t do it I guess).  Lots of chatter about ticking off the Dunkin’ Donuts employees for doing Mary in front of their store. No customers were seen this morning so maybe we were all good. Gummy (I think) complained that my weinke (at least the Evelyn’s Rock / Hill part) was too long.  That’s the first time I’ve been accused of that. Chico almost bailed the triple nickel to just head home to the fancy neighborhood at the top of that hill. Sprockets and Sleepy spent the whole Evelyn’s Rock triple nickel discussing personal care for their beards. Weird.  Hopper and Floorslapper promised to buy me a beer when Clemson beats Ohio State for the National Championship early next year. I’m sure Gummy will join us. Maybe Lewinsky, Revlon, Deep Dish too if they ever come back to Hydra.

This was my 5-year F3 Anniversary.  Hairball brought me out to Hydra for the first time on December 11, 2014.  Hard to believe it’s been 5 years. I’m thankful for the friendships I’ve made through F3.  I think fitness may be a bit better than 5 years ago as well.

Thanks for the opportunity to lead.

Geraldo on Q next week for Chadwyck / Wessex Christmas tour.
