Perfect morning out there today and if you missed it or another site you missed out.  The humidity is back tomorrow.

There is definitely a difference in the two neighborhoods Watchtower has to offer.  Brookmeade has wide streets and perfect asphalt and Wesley Springs has 24 grit asphalt perfect for ripping your hands and back.

It’s great to see some of the newer pax like Chatterbox post with such consistency and work hard, great job.

I felt the dirty looks when I called the burpees at the bottom of Woodwinds so I kept my head down to avoid eye contact and just started doing them hoping everyone would follow along which they did.

All in all, everyone did a great job staying together and working hard.  Smaller groups tend to be a little more cohesive sometimes, especially back in neighborhoods and worked out perfectly today.

Thank you for the opportunity to lead today.
