As always, my Brothers of the Gloom came strong to The Mutt. 18 HIM (1 FNG, welcome Mia Flop) showed up to #getbetter. This includes 7 Ruckers that hit up a 45 minute trek before the 7am games began. #Tclaps
PAX: Wham!, Zartan, Fridge, Buschhhhh, Zoolander, Spreadsheet, Geppetto, Sump Pump, Grinder, Snowman, Fatone, Pope, Glenn Ross, Left Eye, Tiger, Escort, Mia Flop (FNG), Digiorno
Gearlander: Ski gloves w/latex gloves under (this helps when it is cold, wet and raining), Arctic thermals w/base layer over them (YHC is skinny and gets cold), Merrill trail shoes (waterproof), rain jacket.

YHC was toast after this.
We circled up at the flag, announcements were made, intentions were given, the sky Q was given praise.
YHC is always grateful to be in the presence of a great group of HIM. This is truely more than a workout and I am thankfully for each and every one of you.
