Ye Old Moleskin

Had to audible to 400 curls, 500 was a bit excessive.  Recalculating was calling me on calling an IPC type number of reps after I infamously tweeted trash on IPC channel back in September about the 10,000 merkins that was featured in IPC week 2.  Crowd favorite was the 100 blockees.  I introduced the last move in a sneaky way, saying we would continue with the half  parking lot mosey and only 100 reps……of BLOCKEES. I knew with about 10 minutes left no team would likely complete all 100, however the emphasis was to give all you got until time is called.  Sledgeomatic and I got in 68 before time was called, some others more, some less.  Most got in around 2.5 miles.

Representing my alma mater I wore my Green Notre Dame shirt, played Irish music in memory of my Mom (maiden name Donovan), and I lead us out in this prayer:

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
