The Moleskin

As always, it was an honor to lead the workout.  Thanks to Mayor for running  a great Painlab Q.  Great to see Jobu back out at the Gashouse.

Great work by all the Gastonia PAX that participated in the Belmont 5k or Half Marathon this morning.

We finished up with my annual book give away.  This year was the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.  This is one of my favorite personal growth books.  The two I have given out the last two years were The Traveler’s Gift by Andy Andrews and Freedom from Fear by Mark Matteson.  If you don’t have them, I would encourage you to check them out.  I may have a copy or two in the back of my vehicle.  Ask me at the next post if you would like a copy.

Merry Christmas to all the PAX of F3 Gastonia.

Until the next one.  Aye!
