24 PAX posted ITG #TheHogg. Second-Helping of sorts for Spike, who was named Tuesday when he joined for COT. Welcome, Spike, and strong work today. Mixing it up this morning, we had a String of Pearls with the #LilDarlins. At the risk of seeming inappropriate, I’ve included a soundtrack for this back blast; I hope you can rock out with your phone out.


Glorious!! 80 F and 80 RH.

Grab your #LilDarlin and mosey across the Bridge to Nowhere to gather the PAX at the back of St. Theresa’s lot for a #LilDarlin Jailbreak. T’Claps to Camo; he finished first and you’d a thought he was eloping with his #LilDarlin.

CountORama and NameORama

24 PAX and FNG/2H Spike.



  • Scalpel: his daughter finished training Air Force ROTC 4th in her class and will be commissioned next summer. (Scalpel, sorry if my details are off)
  • Cruiser: SIL Vicki having breast cancer surgery
  • Inferno: Old friend has testicular cancer. Be aware of your body, and remember the doctor has a worse deal than you.
  • Guitar Hero: stopped on his run last night to help a family push their van over a bridge and to a gas station. GH thanked F3 for putting him in the right frame of mind to help.

YHC was consistently inspired today by the resilience of the PAX. I would’ve hated this workout (in a good way) if not leading it. Seeing everyone sack up and push through motivated me. One thing I re-learned and hope is instructive for new Qs is that the String of Pearls is a good format to keep the PAX together, whether you have a lot of PAX like we did today, or a wide variety of fitness levels.

Camo, that is the last time you ever beat me in a running event.


Find time to visit #TheTrinity to keep giving it away.

Convergence is a month away. Flood waters at Eleanor Tinsley Park should recede by then.
