Moleskin: The rain mostly held off but the ground was soaked. It didn’t slow us down. Q warned the men up front that there were some items from the Lovefest that we didn’t get to do and they were going to make an appearance here.

Attitudes were mostly positive. Apparently Cornwallis didn’t like the rock push, he broke his in half. Knee high attempted throwing his rock, possibly to break it, he was no Cornwallis.

Lots of mumble chatter around the tunnel of love. Some crop dusting possibly happened, no one owned up.

It was a pleasure! Thank you men.

Thang: Went out towards the Carmel Dad’s fields. Then walked towards the southeast side of the Hill. I didn’t start my watch until we had made it to the fields (looks like I’m missing about 7 minutes of the morning).

Moleskin – Motorboat was out there early to get a run in. We joined up for a ruck, didn’t do anything fancy along the way. We chatted about kids and doctors. It was an enjoyable start to the week. Thank you Motorboat!

Moleskin: Right off the bat we all realized we were under dressed. Any area that was open had a wind that took the heat right out of you. Windchill was 1 degree. Most mumblechatter was about not feeling a part of your body – which wasn’t necessarily bad because we were doing a Murph.

About 3/4 of the way through I noticed all of us hustling and grunting through the routine and fighting off the cold, I knew Cornwallis was doing it as well at home – I paused and thought it was inspiring and hardcore what we were doing. Proud of us, Thanks men!

*in my map above I’m missing the last leg, accidentally turned off my watch.

Moleskin: This morning started off rough, I vaguely remember my alarm going off. At 5:20 I snapped awake and rushed to get to the Hill. On my way I saw that Marshall and DC had to back out due to rough nights as well. I got to the hill 7 minutes late and started rucking. I listened to a personal finance podcast, because I’m fun like that. Some black ice so I walked in the grass in a few areas to avoid slipping.

Moleskin:

Today was about preparing for this evening. We went through a few intense exercises to make sure we were all ready to take care of our significant others tonight. Lots of suggestive mumblechatter that I shouldn’t probably put in here. Most notably we learned that Khaki is very confident between the sheets – perhaps this is over-confidence.

The intensity today was high, Q had a lot planned and didn’t get through all of it. Tried to fit in as much as I could. I had a modified Tunnel of Love that will be making its debut soon.

It was a pleasure! The energy level this morning still has me pumped – thank you men.

Moleskin: A quiet walk by myself. Based on road conditions, that makes sense. I listened to a podcast and went for a stroll.
