Run back to DHS, Both groups join up:

Ball of Man

Moleskin:

  • For the record, Splinter can jump like a kangaroo.
  • The field work was brutal, especially the wheelbarrows.
  • T-Claps to Splinter and Hustler for creativity. I particularly enjoyed the rapid fire hill work (when we weren’t getting almost run over by cars)
  • Fountainhead still has AmFibious t-shirts to distribute, but the list has been a bit corrupted. If you have not picked up your shirt, let FHead know.
  • Sway still has a few of the blue shirts that have not been picked up.
  •  It’s not too late to get on the mud run waiting list. No guarantees of placement.
  • Lastly, this “fork in the road”, “divide the pax” workout proved to be very effective in relieving our attendance “problem” on Saturdays. However, we cannot sustain 40+ forever. As Thunder gains a foothold and a following, keep in mind that the Saturday convergence will split in the near future to provide a second downtown Saturday location. If you have any ideas, please make them known.
