Cul-De-Sac of Doom

Sargento gave the nod for some early morning EC so YHC showed up and Buckeye was there as well.  At the allotted start time, YHC receives a text from the Big Cheese stating, “Almost there”.  If this was the actual start time of the Coconut we would have started without him but since it was EC, we extended grace.

Breaker Breaker showed up for some EC as well and went off on his own.  During the EC run, we ran into and out of neighborhoods and cul-de-sacs.  During one particularly dark street, a cul-de-sac approached.  Sargento led us down a secret passageway that put us into ANOTHER NEIGHBORHOOD!   It was frightening to have no clue where we were but eventually we found our way back to the familiar sidewalks of the Coconut Horse and returned to the parking lot in time to collect anyone else who was ready to run the 5 miler.

Breaker and Gastone headed out early.  Short Sale arrived.  Stroganoff had some EC before as well.  At 0630 we all set off to run the route.  Nothing special this morning except the Waffle House smelled of onions instead of bacon.

When we returned Buckeye left but the rest circled up for the Pledge and COT.

On January 1 we run/ruck 10 miles from the Coconut.

Prayer Requests:  Stroganoff’s family has lost two loved ones this week with another under Hospice care.  Flintstone and Whoopee

We had 5 stay for the modified Q-source where we each discussed our 2021 Word of the year and then went through C-Span’s exercise to be intentional about what we need to do for our 3 F’s in 2021.  If you missed the exercise or want to do it, C-Span will host this on next weeks weekly roundtable call (podcast)  Prioritize those around you that need you the most and be intentional about spending time with them.
