Thanks again to Parrot Head for grabbing the ruck Q on the fly! Gave YHC a chance to run, which I haven’t exactly done for a while.

Strong work by all of the run pax, 400m x2 backwards is NO JOKE! All in, we covered ~2.6 miles.

Welcome Money Gun! Glad to have you ITG, and hope to see you again soon!

Thanks for the Broga Niles, glad you were there to help us get our legs back! Also glad you weren’t Egypt…

T-claps to Mr. Kotter on the clown car action, 5 pax in one ride. Maybe we need to put in some F3 “bus stops” in Kotter’s hood for all the pax?

As always, thank you for allowing me to lead. It was, and always is a gift!


Until next time…
