What? No way it’s time again….

Workout Date:





Stewie, Franklin, Turn & Cough, Valvano, Bling, Lombardi, OneCall (QIC)

The Thang:

61 and WET, but the rain did hold off, while the temperature dropped 10 degrees

I awoke at 3am to pouring rain, and a dang cough that wouldn’t let up, so it was time to get outta bed.  Only 1.5 hours early.  Ugh. But, a good time to read the Bible for a while.  Had an espresso (or 2), checked the temps, read away.  And when the time came, got ready and went to pick up Bling #CarPoolBuddies

We got to the AO at 5:20.  DEAD.  Not a car anywhere.  No FiA, no dog walkers, no PAX.  Eerie.  Same til 5:26.  We were a bit worried!  Then they came rolling in and by the time the 1 minute warning was given, there are 7 total men.  Several of our regulars have pulled hammies, or are sick, or have the stomach flu so YHC wasn’t expecting them.  Weedeater tho.  He HC’d.  No show.  Kinda like yesterday too.  Hmmm.  Geno wasn’t there.  Not sure, but I think at this point, we are more surprised when he is there.  Anyhow, you were both missed; but this one was probably too hard for ya.


We took a little mosey to the covered picnic tables in case the sky opened up on us
