Thanks to the 14 men who posted at Crossroads for the 2021 edition of the Tronmoss 5/10k. A bit of a Q fail in this one as I should have set an earlier start time for the 10k. We live and learn! The main thing is we helped support a young lady and family who has gone through an awful situation. Learn more about the story here if you haven’t heard it already.

The winners are as follows:

Overall: Ball Joint with a 5k PR and the win
Pax Division: Montross, running his first 5k in the 8s in quite some time
Respect Division: Oompa Loompa – the ol’ Marine represents for the silver tops
10k: Dr Seuss – technically Haze and Slaw were considered ineligible by the race committee since they left early, but we will make adjustments for an earlier start time in the future. Let’s be honest though, Seuss would have won anyway!
Also, special thanks to BOS, Pilgrim’s Progress, and Orangeman for making their way across the county to ruck the event.

We raised over $300 to contribute to Tori (the daughter of the victim). All in all, over 5k was raised and donated between F3 ENC, FiA, and a few other groups. Nice work men. I know this personally meant a lot to 4-Leaf and some of the other guys down in F3 ENC and it is cool to see guys from 250+ miles away chip in and help out other communities like you did. I appreciate all of you who came out as well as those of you who contributed online!

Prayer requests: There were many. Sister Act and other guys battling injuries, the GSM family and especially the families of Mr Lewis and Shook, Turtle Man, and several others (sorry, I didn’t make a list). YHC took us out in prayer. BTW, I really dig the prayer list channel on Slack. Props to whomever crated that. Check that out if you haven’t!
