5 PAX + 0 FNG


Robinhood expressed thanks for TAPs for his M’s surgery recover!  Taco expressed his thanks for our TAPs for Baby Taquito!  Reiterated the sentiments from Dugger and Fireball from the day before, we may have our differences politically, but it should not stop us from showing compassion and dignity to our fellow Human Being.  Britney (AO QIC) took us out expressing our thanks for the year the Marathon has given all of us as we sharpen ourselves and grow stronger.

One TAPs we danced around all morning and in retrospect should have just called it in (somebody did), was the moment I showed this morning, a car on Yorktown (remember the same street a major accident happened during another work out at the Marathon, which the PAX responded admirably) was stopped in the middle of the road with it’s blinkers on.  We talked about it, but did flick the switch and act.  It reminds me, find a way to give some help, so it was a good reminder today.


I sincerely wanted to be at the Marathon on day 1, but instead showed up on day 2 and have stayed as a day 2’er since.  But what a difference a year makes.  Of the 15 or so times I’ve posted at the Marathon, I have fond memories…especially the unusual pain Britney, GH, Beanie, Shots Dog, Taco, Robinhood, and even myself bring every time to the Marathon.  Q or no Q, you walk away wondering how I managed through those 45 minutes.  Britney, thanks for moving and deciding the General was too far of a drive now so let’s plant a mustard seed to grow another group of PAX.  And indeed it has grown.  I do feel remise for fartsacking more days than I wanted, but each time I post has left me feeling I gained some of that back.  If all the talk about how hard the Marathon can be, it is just that, all talk.  Come out and post for yourself, especially the coming Monday to celebrate the 1 year anniversary!
