Chasing YoYo & Segment Medals

8 pax BOM’d at Stomp before going their separate ways. 6 felt the need for some hilly speed while 2 proved to be weirdos, carrying logs and other GRT stuff.

It was another good AM in the Stomp gloom as much-needed training for upcoming events was done. Tclaps to Clipboard for being 3rd and helping brother PYT get ready for the GORUCK Selection next month.

Conditions: 73 degrees, 96% humidity

Devo: It’s been on YHC’s mind a lot lately (credit to the M for verbalizing this first). YHC has 2 close F3 friends going through some marital issues. We spend a lot of time being 3rd and looking outward to see who we can help. In doing so, sometimes we miss our own pax and even ourselves as those we can help. We have many men among us who are hurting and we miss it. We can do better at taking care of our own in times of need. If a brother is absent for an extended period of time, there’s a reason. Call him.

No Help also chimed in about being courageous in asking for help or prayers. Showing our own weakness takes a lot of courage.


-We chased YoYo much of the morning.  When we were ahead, he was toying with us and/or pulling sneak attacks.

-The elusive Grinder Strava segment remains elusive as No Help’s attempts keeping getting ignored by Strava. YHC thinks Strava won’t give credit to any man driving a metallic blue vehicle.

-Great being back out with the Stomp studs. Iron sharpening at its finest.
