  • Thanks to BanjoBoy for allowing me to Q this morning and for keeping SoloCup honest.
  • Everyone was giving max effort this morning. It must be because they removed the speed bumps.
  • Garmin only registered that as about 230 calories burned. My shoulders and quads call BS.
  • Nice to meet you 6 Syllable. You’re welcome anytime!
  • Huntersville Half, Mt Afton Challenge and various other races are all swiftly approaching.
  • Tonight through Sunday check out the Live Nativity at Providence Baptist Church.
  • Prayers to the family of the student shot getting off the bus yesterday afternoon. These things are happening right here in our backyards. It’s all of our problem to work on.
  • Coffeeteria featured LiverKing steroid recaps, minimum IQ threshold to successfully reload ammo, and figuring out the right schedule and timeline to successfully polish off a fifth in a day… and still make the beatdown the next day.
  • As another year has passed, and a particularly difficult year personally, YHC is more thankful than ever for this inspiring group of men. It’s saved my life. Keep Pushin.
