The scent of danger takes me to the edge of panic

 



The Floater is probably my favorite site. Why?  Maybe it’s the danger in the air. You never know if you’ll be hit by a garbage truck rolling through, an early morning commuter, a train. You could break an ankle on a curb, pothole, unkept road, you name it. It’s danger and excitement all rolled into one.

13 PAX with a love of danger decided the soupy 71 degree dew point and made for perfect conditions.

DiCCS were given (Disclaimer, Cell phone, CPR, Safety)

MOLESKIN:

Wow, it was hot. Good to see some newer faces out there like Sugar Daddy and Surge. Both respects and both out there killing it. Welcome and keep coming out.

Reclac’s tube top seems to be getting longer, looks like the Waxhaw Express workouts are paying off.

Bad Idea Hill has recently been paved and sealed and is puuuurty nice. When the start times roll back soon it shouldn’t have as much morning traffic and be even nicer.

Great job everyone. Heavy on the miles today and everyone really pushed and did a good job staying together as a group.

Thank you for the opportunity to lead this morning.
