Bearded Beatdown

Our very Own Brother Si delivered the Bayou Beatdown this morning at the Strut.  He brought the pain to 25 Pax.  At one time it looked like a prison yard with individuals going back and forth unwilling or unable to talk to one another due to pain. All you could hear were crickets and gasps for air.  Great workout.   

Conditions: 50° and 90% humidity

  1. Not the best runner in the world here, but the Palmetto 200 is very intriguing to me. C’mon Strut Brigade! If a few of y’all get me in the arm bar, I’ll do this with you!

    Just looking at Chaser’s photos and reading his tweets from the Blue Ridge Relay made me want to experience something like this myself.
