Graveyard: Hills, Relay Race and S. Clause

19 pax including 1 FNG patiently awaited 10 ruckers to join them for their Saturday morning #getbetter. The 10 ruckers including the QIC arrived just in time for their doubledown. That’s some #goodlivin’

The 29 faithful enjoyed some hill work, some sprints, some friendly competition and a visit from S. Clause. It’s that time of the year.

We started with 29 but, unfortunately, ended with 28 as Wiggles sustained a hamstring injury. Prayers for a quick recovery.

Conditions: High 40s and clear

***Most pax got so caught up in the friendly competition and cheering on their team, the exercises didn’t happen. YHC & QIC allowed as encouragement and support is always appreciate. This is where Wiggles injured his hamstring, going all out on a sprint to help his team. Just before the injury, some pax took notice and were impressed with Wiggles’ speed. To see the pax huddle around Wiggles, in obvious pain, was typical F3***
