  1. Thx for coming out to celebrate United Nations Day with me, Gentleman.  Yes, it’s a thing: http://www.un.org/en/events/unday/
  2. Everything seemed like it would work on paper, but it’s always different LIVE.  Way to push and roll with it.  I tried to mix up drills with running.
  3. @LawDawg – Sorry, those cones were actually for F3 and not school equipment.  I know you loved the flying sprints, anyway.
  4. @The Nanny – Enjoy the mountains with your 2.0s.  #makingmemories
  5. @Drop Cloth – Thanks for coming out for my birt…..er….United Nations day, especially with a hurt foot and an M early “alarm discussion.”
  6. The count was 7.1 as we had a Gump (in full biker gear) join us for Mary.

    @Pavarotti – first and foremost – Happy 43rd Birthday! Although your sash wearing skills need to improve (the around the ankles in the first 100 yards was impressive).

    Second comment – that was a great all around Speed Beatdown. Loved the ladder exercise – that will certainly be incorporated into one of my upcoming leads. The warmup exercise (if you call it that) had me rethinking why I came out this morning – that traversing of the whole AO (felt like it) with squats, jumps and hill running was nasty!

    As we discussed earlierthe forming of the United Nations on the day you were born – coincidence or did they have foresite into what arrived in the world that day and needed buyin from all nations to protect it…….?

    BTW – for those not in attendance we had a little trivia dropped on this morning – Who was the creator of the United Nations? Answer: Rotary (who knew – other than @Gump)

      It was foresight and they used me as beacon of hope for all the nations of the world.
