Naked Moleskin
– We had 4 vets from GRC1064 post with us this morning #strong
– YHC grabbed the Q late yesterday when I noticed it was available. So I designed the workout with a GORUCK flavor.
– The 26 exercise reps represented the 26 rucks that made the trek during GRC1064. 24 ruckers, 1 cadre and a shadow ruck for Jeff Proietti (who was hit by a car and died on May 16th during a GORUCK event)
– GRC1064 saw plenty of squat presses, flutter presses and upright rows.

Announcements / Prayer Requests
– Keep Erector and his family in your prayers as he begins chemo
– Grim Reaper advised everyone to get checked annually by a dermatologist (he gets checked twice a year).
– Punkin Spice, Scuba Steve and a few others are signed up for the Battlefrog OCR this weekend at Winsboro SC. They’d love you to join them
– If you think you’d like to try a GORUCK event, there’s a GORUCK light planned in Charlotte on 8/9. It’s a great way to experience GORUCK and contribute to a Charlotte charity.
