Pax hit it hard today. We didn’t even stop for a 10 count. Stayed up and at it. Slalom was awesome today. Really created a challenge and the need to gut it out to get it done. That’s the 4th quarter. It’s about pushing the hardest when you are dog tired and want to quit. In F3. In life. The 4th is the difference maker. It’s where the legacy comes from. The leave right part. So getting tougher in the 4th quarter for YHC is a nonnegotiable thing. Every time, all the time.

Welcome FNG Palmer. New to Belmont via RTP and Tennessee. Looking forward to lots of posts from him. Great Q source by Breaker. Ruckers were out for over 2 hours.
