Bootleg is attacking and completing a 50K trail run today! Well Done!!
Growruck is in 2 weeks. DREDD is leading the DogPile that morning and it is a 7:00am. It will not be as tough as YHC’s beatdown that you just experienced!
Prayers for a lot of sick and injured PAX members and families.
Prayers for Wild Thing and his M. She just had a tumor removed from her brain this past week. Please help them out if you can!
Slurpee has Breaking Bread on Sunday, March 24. YHC is helping, but more help is always needed. Please sign up for future months!
There will be a Roller Coaster run/HDHH on Wednesday April 3 at Palani Drive at 5:30pm. See YHC’s PreBlast.
What a great morning for runs, rucks and beatdowns! This is the last DogPile before the time change which will make it dark again for the next few weeks. Getting the Pipe Loop in was a must even if it was a little damp. Having a tree fall down across it made it even better so we could have an obstacle to hurdle while we were running it. Lots of changes/construction down at the bottom of it which made things a little more interesting.
It was a triple check kind of morning. YHC has been wanting to do a whole partner workout for awhile, so this morning felt like a good time to do it. Also, to get to know some unfamiliar PAX better by partnering up with different guys. A 5th Triple Check was planned but not started because of time. YHC induced a few laughs with Flatline-like cadence during COP. Then he induced more laughs with his accent during poetry reading time.
Welcome to Boarhog and his dog, Tripper visiting from Lake Norman, NC. Most energetic and well trained dog YHC has ever seen. He will sleep well tonight.
Breakfast Club had 10 strong this morning and changed the route a little by adding a jaunt around the lake to the route. If you have not experienced this yet, please do so. It’s a great feeling running with Old Glory and having people beep their horns at you. You may also get your picture taken by Shakedown!
ET’s highlights include a conversation about Goat Sperm. There was discussion about planning for the Fall Retreat(no guns, but gasoline, wood pallets and a lighter are allowed.) Also, Saab misses his childhood pet cat, whose name was Pussy Cat…..
YHC thanks all of you for coming out and working hard this morning! It is always an honor to lead this fine group! Have a great rest of the weekend, all and don’t forget about YHC’s poetry reading and to focus on what’s ahead of you and not what’s behind you!
