The Lame Duck regulars decided last week to move LD up 15 minutes to a 0530 start. YHC struggled to get out of the fartsack, but I’m glad I did. I pulled into the parking lot a couple of minutes late to find just Epoxy and Go Long. Scheduled Q Yukon was MIA. Since he’s posted alone more than once, I’m glad he’s getting a break. I secretly hope he’s getting in that long desired post at Fight Club. We decide on a Community Q and YHC gets us started with warm ups.

Memorial Day convergence with pre-Murph and pre-Ruck options.
Epoxy gave us an update on Azul. Prayers for families affected by suicide. Prayers for all the high school and college kids that will be out on the road this weekend and this Summer.
Go Long took us out.
I really, really, really wanted to stay in the fartsack this morning, and even considered getting back in as I was getting dressed. I’m glad I made it, and I’m glad Epoxy felt obligated to post after tweeting a response about the new start time the night before. As always, I never regret posting after the workout’s complete.
On a personal note, I’m still in shock at the suicide of a former neighbor this week. Depression sucks and it’s hard to tell just how low people are. If you think somebody’s struggling, please reach out to them.
May you all have a blessed, safe Memorial weekend.
Support each other!
