Double Check VQ at Golden Strip tomorrow and Thumper has Q tomorrow at Pitchfork.
Prayers for all teams of F3 running in Mud Run this weekend.
Prayer requests I missed and those unspoken.

There was a request made by ATM to not have any Merkins tomorrow at Pitchfork

Not a whole lot of running, but it was warming to have a good turn out despite the cold temps this AM. Thank you brothers for showing up, its always a pleasure.

Later Days!
