The Thang:

Conditions: 72, sunny w/ slight breeze

As YHC pulls into The Pit Stop and grabs BB’s shovel flag to plant, Big Love comes over to welcome me back. As we chat Beaker pulls in with shovel flag #2. Awesome! As the three of us catch up with the latest, more F3 GrandStrand brothers arrive on scene. A quick glance at my Ironman and I give the 2 minute warning.

1 minute warning

0730, The DISCLAIMER was given


SSH x 25 IC  Pause: Man enters COP with java in one hand and croissant in the other, pontificating about whatever entered his mind. After 3-4 minutes, we get “Pink Slim” (name given randomly) to put down his breakfast and  join us. After about a dozen SSH, Pink Slim wandered off and said he would see us next week. Hope he returns!

Pledge of Allegiance

The Thang

I explain to the PAX, each man (the driver) does 2 laps around the parking lot, while calling out his exercise for the Pit Crew. Each man survived their two laps with no spinouts or wrecks.

The next drill, partner up and get ready for “patty cake merkins.” While your partner runs in one direction around the parking lot and you the other, when you meet drop and do 10 merkins (facing each other making patty cakes), descending down to 1.

Always enjoy being with the men at The Pit Stop. Shared Romans 8: 1 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus and message of “Forgive Yourself.” Forgiving yourself begins by embracing the truth that your heavenly Father has forgiven you. Amen
