I just knew today was going to be a great day with a good showing of PAX pre-rucking and running.  Then, to have a DR PAX from F3 Aiken was awesome….welcome brother! Apparently, this cheer dad thing is really taking off.  YHC would really appreciate nobody telling my 3 daughters, though…we are busy enough.  Sometimes, you just have to keep ‘em guessing…or maybe change your plan so that their guess was wrong.  Either way, it felt like we needed to go to the rail trail, because it has been a while.  It also gave us the opportunity to put “string of pearls” to good use.  The PAX did remarkably well staying together.  A new tradition was born upon finding an old hubcap as it was later given to Skinner to remember us by…for some reason he was literally the first person out of the parking lot.  Confession time…in my haste to make sure we made an announcement about GrowRuck since no one has likely heard about it from Flanders yet, we sort of “postponed” Count-off and Name ‘o’ Rama until after Prayer/Pledge.  Good thing we have a Foxy.  Like I said at the beginning…I am not a professional and I am just trying to get used to this Q format thing.  TClaps to those that rucked this morning, but knew my Q would be too much for them (cough:::Shuttlecock…cough cough…Speedwalker). Fun Fact: Did you know that Speedwalker wears shoes for 2000 miles and that they work just as well and that it is a big government plot to make you buy more shoes by saying there is a mileage limit on them?! Okay..I may have embellished some of that. Thanks for letting me lead you today brothers!  SYITG!!!
