As we end the week, I want to remind you to be cautious as we enter Phase 4.  Let’s do all we can to not have a set back.  Lead by example.  Be smart.  Make good decisions.  But live.


Naked Man Moleskin

This group of 15 gave me all they had.  I did a bit of recon the night before with my daughter.  We walked the Ridge and I had a beatdown planned that I didn’t thing we’d get through, even on an hour long Saturday, so I made sure we had a few coupon exercises planned that would surely take us to the bell.
I was wrong.
After finishing with the coupons, we still had a few minutes left.  What to do with a few more minutes, well, run and do more merkins, that’s what.  These guys put me in a position where I had to improvise.  We kept going.  We did not rest for 60 minutes!  It was glorious!
