Elsa’s Fury

Words fall short of expressing YHC’s sentiment regarding today’s Q and Elsa’s furry. After a long internal dialogue and a few moments of personal self-reflection in the car, YHC decided to finish the workout – even if solo. It would be a great opportunity to test out some of my anticipated clothing for the GoRuck. Much to my surprise as I exited the warmth of the vehicle, another brave soul joined me. For the most part, YHC stuck to the original planned Q (with the exception of BBSU). The track and field were snow covered, so distances are an approximation.
