Complete 2 mile run for time.
Do various plank exercises while waiting on the 6.

Moleskin: T-Claps to all PAX for pushing the rock this morning. Splinter, RA, Garnish, Misfire and Detour killed it. Take note of Splinter’s merkin count. The grading chart doesn’t even go that high. YHC challenged the PAX to work to get better by posting at other AO’s throughout the week (especially Battle). Don’t just show up and go through the motions. Another test will be done at the end of 2018.
