Planning a workout at an unfamiliar site during the daylight hours is a far cry from executing it in the not-so-daylight gloom. First-time Q at Baileywick Park? Check. Wet & muddy terrain? Sure. A curtain of darkness straight ahead? You betcha. OK guys…FOLLOW ME.
Jog around the parking lot perimeter. YHC glances back to converse with PAX only to stumble over a speed hump attempting a Q tackle. Faceplant narrowly averted. Shaken but undeterred, YHC leads the group into the realm of darkness to find a large open field on the other side.
