For those that were able to finish swept up the 6 since we were running short on time. For the trip back we took the long way around up the long hill to the back of the high school, Indian Run style. Man in the front held the speaker which is a coupon all on its own and handed it off the PAX that ran to the front. We made it back to the flag right at 0615. Awesome morning!

Naked Man Moleskin:

Truly amazing morning men! I ran into Fleetwood at church this Sunday and he said something that really made me think. He said that despite the fact that he finds himself in a constant state of some pain or another because of F3, he is happier than when he worked out alone and was pain free. For whatever reason, that really hit home with me training for the Ragnar. As much as it hurts to crawl out of bed in the morning and break myself down again, I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. I’m already looking forward to the next one. Some highlights from this morning:

Tinder coming in hot, but we left anyway!

Garfield reminiscing about pooping behind the dumpster as we ran while simultaneously questioning why the mattress is still there or why there is a mattress there at all

Silverado showing up about 15 minutes in after trying to join the FiA ladies looking for us. My M said they saw a guy with a red shirt running around the school and was a little confused

Z93 dropping the music knowledge when I defended the Incubus song that Spotify recommended for my 90’s playlist. It was, in fact, circa 2001 just like he said. I’ll never question his wisdom again 🙂

Tinder told the story of how he got his name when he joined us on the July 4, no wait, the 9/11 convergence. Said he showed up packing heat, haha

Solid coffeteria as always and some great discussions had during the fellowship portion of the beatdown this morning. The best part by far.

Garfield coffee > Grylls coffee still. Can’t beat the cinnamon

Love you all brothers, until next time. SYITG
