As YHC and the other pax were reminded this morning, Granite Falls is a very cool place and great AO. Lots of great workout terrain, an awesome PAX, and oddly, plenty of traffic at 0’dark-thirty. We were also reminded that we don’t get up for easy. A great effort by the GF Hurler PAX this morning as they covered 1.5 miles, completed a tough workout, pushed and encouraged each other along the way.

– Smoky Mountain Relay – Whos in? Well, 9 are so far. Let’s go men! There are 3 spots remaining. If you need more info contact HBC. http://smr.smokymountainrelay.com/

– I know there were more…YHC was delirious after the beatdown so he can’t remember….read your newsletter and stayed tuned on Twitter and Facebook for other important announcements!

We closed with a reading from James 1:2-4 and a reminder that through the trials of life we can learn perseverance, which will serve us well:
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

It was an honor to guest Q and workout with you men this morning. Thanks for the invite! Aye!
