- We figured to be the only fools out early in the less than ideal post-Sandy conditions, and we were correct.
- Banter was strong and all was well until we left the shelter of the woods and turned onto the dam, at which point Mother Nature delivered a strong right hook with a 25 mph gust accross the water. Almost repeated the double knockout scene from Rocky II, but we both managed to pull a Balboa and stagger across the finish line.
- Tclaps to Riggs, CK, Howard and Wonk for helping launch F3 Durham this morning. Great sign that 8 men would roll out at 5 am on a morning like this to get things started in the Bull City. Maize and I are on tap to lead next week and would love to have a few Raleigh Pax head over with us to keep up the momentum.
- Thoughts and prayers to those dealing with storm and its aftermath, especially those who have lost loved ones.
