I’m a lawyer. And despite the rumors, some lawyers mean and do what they say. That brings YHC to the first lesson of the day: assumption of risk. Assumption of risk is typically an affirmative defense in a negligence case, in which the defendant (YHC) claims that the situation (such as taking a ski-lift, climbing a steep cliff, or coming to Danger Zone today) was so inherently or obviously hazardous that the injured plaintiff (PAX) should have known there was danger and yet still engaged in the situation. In other words, for those who came to BO yesterday – and heard YHC say “we are going to run tomorrow” – and then still came to Danger Zone this morning, well, you assumed the risk.

As for the rest of you, let YHC teach you about waiver. A waiver is the voluntary and intentional relinquishment or surrender of some known right or privilege. For instance, you had the right to stop running, yet you didn’t, most likely because the rest of the PAX would make fun of you (with reason).

That bring YHC to the third lesson: nagging. No one likes it. Why don’t we see the park? Are we going to run around this circle again? Someone needs to cut a hole in this pavement. Nag nag nag nag nag nag nag. You reap what you sow, men.

Warmup: Failed count-o-rama (which falls squarely on YHC’s shoulders), Run (shocker)

Thang: Run some more, mostly in a circle around the parking lot, but on one occasion out the park and down the hill (because of nagging) and on two other occasions on the bball court for suicides with a sprinkle of BTTW and People’s Chair (also because of nagging). Intermingled with said circular running were Mary and Superman, bear crawls (nagging), with more Mary at the end and one set of Merkins (YHC notes that the “not a merkin in sight” comment did not constitute nagging, but did constitute an invitation for said Merkins).

Announcements: All UNC and NCSU PAX love to make fun of other Triangle based universities, all of which have rightfully earned such mockery.

Prayers/praises: Congrats to M. Banjo on finishing up school. Prayers to M. Banjo for now having to deal with Banjo on a more regular basis.
