  1. Great work today by all.  3.0 miles total.  It was an honor to lead such a great group!
  2. We should be repeating this workout occasionally as it is a great benchmark to measure you’re improvement.
  3. Great to see Rooster, ET, UCB and Buggy returning to the gloom!
  4. Jackie Chiles – great job making out to the Bull Run to join the 1 hour just isn’t enough club!
  5. Thanks to the Bull runners for helping with the PFT run timing/recording prep.
  6. PFT info – the Army and Marines PFTs do 2 minutes for the merkins/situps with a 2.0 and 3.0 mi run respectively.  The Marines PFT trades pullups to failure for the merkins.
  7. PFT scores: > 90 (Excellent): Bull, Escalade (100), Segundo, YHC (99), Nautilus (96), Hootie (94), Short Circuit (91).  75-89 (Satisfactory), scores available at request.
  8. Upcoming events: Bear (6/6), Mint Hill expansion/parade – see Deuce, Harrisburg barbecue 6/13, Spartan – see Chaos and Gapper, Q school (sign up to lead even if you can’t attend Q school – its your duty – the workouts aren’t totally free – grab a good Q and they will be happy to mentor &/or split duties with you).
