A few weeks ago, I saw something HIPAA mentioned about Qing every site and decided that was a challenge I want to take on this year. Some sites are hard for my schedule, but I’m going to find a way to Q at every location this year….and what better time to Q Coconut Horse than as I’m hitting the homestretch of P200 training!

I like to try to stay north of 85 as much as possible. I have a reputation to uphold! Whenever I come south of the Gaston-Dixon line, I have to be careful not to let too much yuppie rub off on me LOL!!!!
I felt comfortable since I was more in my truck! The weather was beautiful, the birds were chirping (well, they were chirping somewhere, I didn’t hear them), the bees were…well they aren’t doing much yet either….but there were 12 men at the Teeter for a little mosey around lower Gastonia. Paces varied but everyone made it back safe and sound and remains to fight another day! Good work by all. Thanks Gastone for picking up the flag for me (Q fail) and also for hanging out until 6:30 so I could leave at “Clydesdale” time and be sure I made it back in time!

Announcements: P200 upcoming, Convergence at FOLSOM on 3/30 (Tool Time, Freight, and Woop-dee-dang-doo will be Qing), 2nd F events on Fridays at the Station in Belmont (contact Tiger for more info…these guys are consistent so get out there!), 3rd F at Allen Tate’s if anyone is interested (once monthly). (I may have missed one here, the note on my phone crashed). Prayer requests: F3 PAX from Hartsville who passed Saturday during a race, Whetstone, Breaker’s sister-in-law’s father in hospice, Gastone’s father, Nikki Bailey and family, and an unspoken request. YHC took us out in prayer.

Moleskin: I encourage everyone running at Crossroads to visit the Horse and vice versa. It is a great change of scenery and both offer different challenges. More important, it gives you a chance to mix up Q source and learn with some other guys you aren’t as used to discussing the weekly topic with.

On a personal note, I ran the entire loop without stopping, which I was unable to do last time I tried in Spring 2018. That was something I have been wanting to “check off my list” for a while now!
