With the shovel flag planted, the knee-high grass of Roanoke Park soaking wet, and the humidity near 112%, 23 warriors set out to take on fire and steel of Heavy Metal.

WARM-UP

Not today.  But when we die, on our deathbeds, we’ll receive total consciousness.  So we have that going for us.  A jogging preview of the Roanoke gauntlet (see below) served as today’s warm-up.

COT

  • Tclaps to the Pax today – this was a grinder.
  • No Mary today, in fact, nowhere to be seen.  With El Jefe sustaining a near life-threatening wound, several Pax speculated that Mary in fact shot El Jefe and then fled the scene.  Top men are investigating.
  • Last day to order F3 Raleigh shirts has been extended now to THIS Sunday.
  • Prayers are with Getty’s friend now battling colon cancer.
