The Thang:

2 Weeks ago YHC got a text from High Interest stating that we haven’t had a Beach Beatdown in sometime and St Paddy’s Day would be a great time for the Bi-annual Event! Sure. . .sounds great . . . Let’s do it. . . and besides no one was on Q at BS for this Saturday (We knew we would be missing some of the Usual Suspects due to the Adventure Race & DR commitments but that was OK becausee there would be plenty of pain to go around!). So the word went out and announcements were made. I assumed,#neverassume. . ., that H.I. would Q this Shin-dig (his idea and all that & YHC is still nursing some kind of pinched nerve in his hip that radiates down his leg) BUT last night about 12 hours before Go-time YHC received a text from High Interest that he “was not sure where he was going to post.” He was nice enough to send me the “official” route and when I asked, ” Who’s gonna Q it??”, he let me know that I had the honors. . . YHC’s been reading some of the recent BackBlasts and hope H.I. was able to post somewhere! So long story short YHC eagerly accepted his voluntold Q and headed to beach bright and early this morning to mark the pain stations and get to the Village by 6 am. Pulling into the Village I saw Handy, Vitimin D, and El Red Cardo who were all ready to go but they were wondering where High Interest was? “He’s on Q, right?” . . .SUPRISE!!  We circled up  . . . while in the middle of SSHs, Buffett rolled in and Side Straddle Hopped his way into the COP to complete today’s PAX!
