Lots of 44’s for The Herd

9 pax assembled ‘round the Shovel Flag this morning to take the DRP and make their daily downpainment. It was a special day for the Q as YHC turns 44 today. When thinking about a theme for what we could do to get better today, the image of Dirty Harry Callahan’s .44 Magnum kept coming to mind and that if the pax got out of bed this early, YHC owed it to them to them to smoke them.

Great work by #TheHerd today! As YHC put this workout together, it started to get the feel of one that “looks good on paper” but not the easiest to execute. However, several pax quickly debunked that thought as many were able to complete 44 consecutive reps of the exercises without stopping. Pretty impressive in my book!

We welcomed “Glow Rod” into #TheHerd this AM. He works at Westinghouse and enjoys fishing. Stinkbait was considered, but upon using our new handy dandy Nickname Database provided by the very helpful No Help and his tech savvy cronies, we determined that we already have a Stinkbait and moved along to Glow Rod. T-claps for the new tool guys!

The Midlands Tour fires up on June 14. If you’re interested in participating, please let me or Ken Doll know. This is a great way to get around and visit some other AOs. Good times for sure!

A day-trip to run on part of the Black Mountain Marathon course is scheduled for Saturday, June 16. The plan will be to leave at 0530, get there around 0800, run for a couple of hours, grab coffeeteria at an awesome spot and head back to get home by 2:30. Please let YHC know if you’re interested in going.

Prayers for Prom Night’s Brother (unspoken), Ocho Cinco’s co-worker (stroke) and Tuff Guy’s father (getting pace maker today).
