Well done this morning, fellas. As mentioned at the beginning, YHC would typically have not shown up for a cold/rainy workout, but having signed up as Q previously this brotherhood was good accountability to alter that norm. It’s been >1 yr for YHC as part of the Richmond PAX and it is an honor and privilege to be a part of it, and to have made many new friends in that time.
Good conversation & fellowship at the local Coffeteria afterward. Among other items, the joys of jury duty, speeding tickets, and vendor pricing were discussed.
