Instructions: 1. Music 2. Over 2 Miles 3. A Theme. Today we brought Stranger Things to Crossroads. And it was strange. Let’s start with 80’s garb, including a Pac-Man shirt (Rest Stop), a “Made in the 80’s” shirt (Westside), a York Barbell Club T-shirt with Falcons Tube Socks (guess who), a Headband (Yogi, or is this a regular thing), and YHC with cut-up Norcross High Cross Country shirt from 1987 (Go Blue Devis!). There was even a Hawkins Lab Shirt sighting in the CoT, and Eggo’s courtesy of Quaggy P, along some excellent Coffee from Babyface and LuckyCharms. Plus a huge Bluetooth Speaker from Einstein for the 80’s music. And we can’t forget… 2 really strange masked PAX/FNG’s/Random dudes that joined the beatdown from a distance, then disappeared. Talk about a surprise plan gone wrong… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEG3bmU_WaI

COT: Several announcements of upcoming events on Slack, including Chattanooga Ruck, Sawnee Mtn Race, Friday night 5K and 2ndF at Reformation, F3 Cherokee GrowRuck, Spartans. Hit up Slack!
A little light on prayer requests which is a praise in and of itself, but hit 3rd F channel for some recent requests from PAX.
Praise for Babyface's 2.0 Mason who is recovering well from infection last weekend.
Naked Man Moleskin: Crossroads becoming a favorite for YHC. Actually, you wanna know my favorite? There are 36 of them across Cherokee every week. Go GET SOME!
Don't know who the 2 masked maniacs were (yes I do) but they run without moving their arms so that's cool? And they were spotted later loitering in a jeep, don't ask, don't tell. 😱🚙
Pitchfork drinking F3 from a firehose! (Literally, I heard over the weekend). WELCOME BRO!!! ⫚
Quagmire with the Floppy Eggo's... and the ants for extra protein... but with coffee it was the best waffle I had all morning. 🐜 ☕️
Kiffin hanging in there on one knee and a humongous Quadricep. Well just one of the Ceps. Guess that's a Unicep? 🦵🏻
YHC tried on the old 80's track shirt... NO! that did not fit not even close. Had to go with Plan B the 80's cutoff. 🎽
LuckyCharms with the callout "Where the hell is Dory with breakfast?" Haha how quickly the world owes us something that existed only a few days ago?!! ☘️
Have you seen Louis CK's "Everything is amazing and nobody is happy". The 80's were a simpler time... when I was a kid we had a rotary phone you had to stand next to. You're making SPARKS! And if you had 2 zeros in your number nobody wanted to call you.
