Thanksgiving comes early

The men of Dallas have a special knack for being fruitful and multiplying in the gloom. Every time Scrat and I go for a ruck from the Ingles parking lot, we are met with double or triple the number of PAX by the time the COT occurs.  This morning was no different.

Stogie, Scrat, and I rucked, while Flintstone led a ruck beatdown on his own (hard pass). 30 minutes later, Wirenut comes flying in from his run, followed by Rum Runner & Chubbs a few minutes later.

The word for the Sword was to begin Thanksgiving today.. Some verses included:

  1. Psalm 100:4 (NIV): “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.”
  2. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV): “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
  3. Colossians 3:17 (NIV): “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

Announcements: Christmas Party, ChristmasTown 5K, Beer Ruck

Prayer Requests: Wirenut’s mother, Turtleman, Hunchback’s friend battling ALS

The Sandlot – Rinse/Repeat Gashouse

Two days after Q’ing Gashouse, I had the Q this morning at The Sandlot.  I decided to rinse/repeat as much of the Saturday workout as I could.

Another terrific weather morning and a good crowd of Hims to start the week off well.
