monk’s ankles

It was the same day as the Mt. Mitchell hike so we expected low numbers. Turns out we had 3. There were 6 for Mt. Mitchell so there may have been a few fartsackers????? Monk and I had a good run while Breaker Breaker took on some hills. Monk was kind and stayed with me until the gut check then he took off. He opened up to me while we were running and said he really hated to run. He said it hurt his ankles and he has some sort of inherited ankle-itis issue that skips every 3rd generation. At night he has to soak his feet/ankles in warm milk and wrap them in feminine napkins soaked in vinegar to help relieve the pain. For whatever reason, rucking does not bother him so plans to ruck full time in DC. At least that is what I remember him saying during the run….

Whatever works Monk-good luck.

HushPuppy came for Q Source and Breaker Breaker left to go to church right after run.

Good work men and hope those ankles get better soon Monk. Send us your address so we can send you supplies for your ankles…

The Moleskin:

Stinky Bird was supposed to VQ but it is postponed until next Wednesday. I did not find out until 8:30pm so I just took the Q but was mentioned that I did not offer it up to anybody. I quickly offered it to Shortsale but knowbody grabbed. They must have really wanted me to do this Q.

Neverland and Mt. Hollywood closed on Monday but Martha Rivers Park is open at 7am for a Murph. Come one come all. Once you do one of these under an hour you are supposed to add a weighted pack.

Prayers, lift the community and each other.

Gastone Out.

6 men at Prison Break.  5 ran, jogged or moseyed and Big Pappy put in almost 5 miles rucking.  Great job.
