Ascending speed mosey back to Large Green Area in the park –

mosey to Anchor (starting point) since no shovel flag as noted below.

3 minutes left and Big Easy wants some more –

15 tempo merkins, 10 second rest, 10 tempo merkins, and 5 tempo merkins IC.

COT – Big easy announced f3 Lowcountry Boston Butt sale and openings on palmetto 200. Prayer request for Pat Dennis and family. Shortage of Blood this month at ONE BLOOD – request that all pax visit when then can – schedule at the end of this post. Side benefit – 1 donation weighs a pound – side benefit will be loss of said pound albeit temporary. 

Moleskin: I noted at the outset that there was not as good of a turnout as expected and was met with verbal abuse by the brave and strong PAX who did make the choice to roll out of their fart sack and post. Leadership lapse noted and corrrected. Also noted that the shovel flag was missing and that man who possessed it was also absent. Where was Grape Juice? Missed his crazy rhythmic SSH and IW tempo.

Otter performed perfect OYO Merkins at the top of the bridge – detail was impressive. Big Easy outperformed all PAX on descending curb crawl – he seems to excel at all things bear crawl related. Sunshine posted for his first sub 40 degree workout … continuing his pursuit of excellence.

One Blood next to Papaya on Boundary St hours of operation – low on blood
