YHC started this year eager to continue Cotton’s 2020 Q Challenge (Q 20 unique AOs over the course of the year). I had to be a little aggressive to pull it off after our COVID break, but I did it and that momentum carried me right into 2021. So here I am, 21 Qs at 21 AOs on March 9.

Oakwood Cemetery is hosting a virtual 5K to raise money to make up for tour money that hasn’t been coming in during COVID. It runs through the end of the month, but Frey Daddy is organizing a group run during Black Ops on March 14 at 2PM.
Prayers unspoken, especially E-Trade’s mom.
E-Trade took us out
Back in March 2020, I had only finished four Qs and was on the eve of my fifth when the COVID shutdowns started taking place. I pretty much gave up and stopped thinking about it. When things officially started back in August and I looked at my calendar I thought, “I could still do this.” It took a little planning to find empty slots on the Q sheets and at least one Q a week (three for one week in October), but I did it and I loved it. I didn’t want to stop my momentum in the new year and knew 21 would come pretty quickly, although not this quickly. My “soft” goal beyond 21 was to Q all the workouts listed on the Raleigh website, even the ones I was scared of in 2020. So I guess the soft goal is now the next goal.
T-claps to Cotton for the 2020 Challenge, Snowbird and the Darkside boys for their energy with their 2021 Challenge(s), and the boys at True Grit whose initial Q 5 challenge at the end of 2019 got me to even consider Cotton’s challenge.
This was my twenty-first #F3Q21 #2021Challenge Q. Why stop now? Next stop is Ragnarok in Carpex on 3/11 (Thursday, 8PM)
