It’s officially humid…

I appreciate the opportunity to lead the men of Base Camp this morning. YHC hadn’t been out to South Charlotte in a few months due to another Monday morning AO starting up right by my neighborhood. It was great to get back out and see what’s changed. Thankfully nothing had. Still a great group of guys and a really great AO as there are so many options…

Not much discussion early on as 10 PAX looked forward to another Monday morning boot camp in 98% humidity. Felt cooler until we actually started moving. Extended disclaimer provided to allow OT to get out of his car and off we went.

Here’s what went down.

The Thang

Quick lap around the bus lot and circle up at the front of the school.

  • Big Boy Sit-Ups x 10
  • Dollies x 20

Called time and COT.


  • Mumble chatter was light throughout the workout but for whatever reason, I can’t remember a thing that was discussed.
  • We did get to share a brief overlap with a few runners who, without a Q in charge, drafted in for about 10 LBCs before deciding they were really just a running AO.
  • So much versatility at Base Camp. Appreciate Magoo & Thunder for having me out.


  • Prayer requests for Thunder Road and his wife Jane. Pray that the Lord places his arms around you both and leads you through the next few weeks.
