I got up and heard the wind whipping on my house and it was poring. I thought no way this is happening so I will get ready and go down to see if anybody is thinking the same way. My wife awakened and tried to stop me but I shook her off my leg and got out the front door. I arrived, Roscoe in parking lot waiting but I could barely see him with his tinted windows. Looked like Pockets truck was at the location but never had seen him. Tooltime and another car in place so I decided while I am making up my mind to drive and look for the guys and look at conditions.  I drive down towards the armory and Roscoe calls me. Asked me what I am doing and I told him I am not running in this mess. He asked why not. I drove back to the start and passed DDC and then Tooltime running back to the start.

DDC came out for a ruck but ended up running with Tooltime. He did not stay for the regular but get’s lots of credit for running.

Roscoe, Gastone, and Tooltime proceeded to get the regular 5 mile coarse in. It really was not bad, even the greenway we did go through waste deep water but the floating debris helped us get to the other side and back on the trail. Roscoe is a good swimmer so that helped. Once back on the greenway we had to dodge falling trees and electrical lines but did not bug us as we were in conversation. We turned to run up Robinwood but the mudslides made it more difficult, but we made it.

Good run, with great guys. I probably would have tapped out if it was not for the leadership of the other 2 guys on this run.

Still really don’t know if Pockets was around but I am giving him credit because it looked like his truck in the lot.

Kudos guys,

Gastone
