Mosey up the stairs one more time and to the gramophone???  I think it’s a gramophone.  Turn the crank and hold plank while the Hoagy Carmichael tune plays.   We held plank while Ray Charles epically delivered “Georgia on my mind”.  Mosey to the shovel flag.  Recover Recover. 

Moleskin:  A beatdown with 3 men brought back some early F3 memories to YHC when the group at The Hill was just taking off.  The growth in 2 years really has been remarkable.  It was great to chat with Wilson and Clancy while they humored me while pretending to enjoy running up and down the stairs.  Quote of the Q belonged to Clancy who remarked something like “I would rather do a Burpee than a Turkish Get-ups”.  Prayers for those dealing with isolation and separation during this challenging time.  Watch out for a Monday run/ruck starting at The Vet after the first of the year.
