As I backed out of my garage, I heard the first thunder crack.  I couldn’t turn back as I had committed to Q the ground and pound and I had 60 minutes of workout to cram into 45.  The thunder and lightning persisted as I pulled into the AO.  Mr. Hand arrived later and we both tested all that Garner’s 4G LTE network had to offer and compared the merits of weather apps.

Soon enough the time came to start this thing,  How did we know, you ask?  Because Tardy arrived!!

The Warmup

Just as the Andrea Gail turned east to head toward the Flemish Cap in “The Perfect Storm”, I led the PAX north on our initial run into the eye of the devil.

The Thang

Jog to the parking lot and gather by the large metal trailer as the lightning persists.  Site Q and YHC agree that the next close lightning bolt – we call it and head to the cars to do leg lifts in our front seats.

Naked Moleskin:  Always an honor to be in the gloom with you men.  Even more of an honor to lead.  There is no way I would have been there this morning without the accountability and the strong friendship that we bond.   Thanks for making me stronger and faster every time I post.
