NMS:  We’ll start with a praise report. After working with a great PT, and with wearing an ankle brace, YHC ran the 2.5 mile Morning Wood pre-run without the IT Band pain that’s been keeping YHC from long distance running for the last 15+ years! Lord willing, running groups and BRR can be in my future. Was great to have such a solid group at R&R this morning. Bone Thugs’ arrival was a surprise since he’d planned on Dogpile, but his presence was as fine and humorous as always. The PAX was about to kick-off at 0700 and we were passed by a geriatric group of walkers heckling us to try and keep up – hilarious – YHC thought about calling monkey humpers after we passed them, but thought better of it. With no specific plan in place apart from “trying hard”, a fairly challenging routine followed, and the mumble chatter was fairly limited. Doing 3 sets of dying boxing cockroaches reminded YHC we should implement these more often. On the BLIMPS circuit the PAX was passed twice by a group of ladies, and the PAX planked in neat formation along the side of the trail to perform excellent merkins IC, by which the ladies were duly impressed. Overall a very successful morning, and YHC was reminded of a quote which I’ve shared below. May we all be mindful of the power we give away to lesser things. For HIM, DTH

  1. – Bone Thugs has the RAMM Q on Tax Day – 6 and 8 mile routes available
    – Florence and Body Karate reminded the PAX of our responsibility to headlock, both FNG’s and guys that haven’t been out in a while. We have the power to help save them from themselves!

  2. Another TryHard Q didn’t disappoint and brought the pain. Thanks for the Q brother!
