The Thang:

A beautiful cool morning at Warthog, 40 ish low, to medium humidity.

Passed Hamburglar and Franklin at the turn in at Market Commons Running hard as usual. Did not get there pace time but about 4-5 miles from what Hamburglar said.

Pax started to arrive 10 mins early as par or Warthog, Karma up to his usual cheery mood as he rolls out of his car. I could tell he was worried about running.

at the 5 min mark, most had arrived. I do believe I had never met Cheesy Biscuit, and from what I was told Strikeout hasn’t been here for quite a while as he emerged out of the blackness of the parking lot.

A quick hello to all was given and the work out started.

Disclaimers where given.  ( As I felt it should be given. being my first time.)

Billboard started in on me early with the way I was conducting my VQ. mumble chatter was already beginning. I would expect nothing less form all of the fin Gents we run with at warthog.

moved over to the good part of the parking lot where there is less gravel to slip and fall in. the Circle of Pain started.

and then the staple

10 merkin, 10 diamond, 10 wide.

I circled all up in plank and took a page out of Billboards ( respect) book  and took a moment to tell all the guys that have been pushing me what was going on with my Airforce works, and the issues with MEPS , my recruiter and why I was told MEPS was today the 19th and why it has changed.

The mistake they are making with not letting me in now. In time I am only going to get better.  when its time I will be taking souls.

moved back over to the bridge and ran the surf and turf in reverse.

the last 10 mins where a round of marry? I think that what we call it. PAX choice I called names or had them pick some ab burring work.

returned back to AO with 5 or so mins to spare. Bling and One call bugged out.
