Observations from the Gloom
– Good to see @Radar and @Pledge this morning. The latter lives as close as anyone to #TheBurbs so should be a regular #hinthint
– The #GreerBoys know way too much about each other. @BlueHawaii and @NSA particularly with talk of #Bricksize and such.
– @Footloose accused me of preferential treatment when I chose my #doppelganger as a partner #dumbluck
– We need more bricks at the #brickpile. Slim pickings with 15 guys #goodproblemtohave
– @BlueHawaii was dressed as if it was 10* with a 0* wind chill. #Sumterboysdon’tlikecold #it’sNotTightsWeatherYet #SlapChopwasinshorts&shortsleeves
– I like tabata style workouts but don’t like having to use my phone (for the timer). #necessaryevil

– @Wilson competing in the Harbison 50k this weekend
– Continued for @GCOD with their adoption of Dennis
– Reach out to someone you haven’t talked with in a while. Hold them accountable (co-worker, friend, family member)

– Drifter
– 1/23 convergence at #StarCommand for Padre (Rock Hill and Fort Mill coming over for the workout)
– Get your goals written down and shared with someone that will hold you #accountable

See ya in the gloom…..
