    • It is easy to show your faith when things are going well. It is in the difficult times that others look to you to see how strong your faith is. Your faith in God during the difficult times can be an inspiration to others.


    • YHC did not give two minute warning before the workout, which caused some angst among the PAX. After a reminder from Dreamliner YHC gave a one minute warning and everyone felt better.
    • Three FNGs from Tuesday all returned for more punishment (Sooie, Spoke and Baby Steps). It was awesome!
    • If a gun was held to his head, Marvel would choose crab walk over bear crawl, but that seems pretty drastic.


    • Colonial 200 sign-ups are ongoing, but it is getting close to crunch time.
    • The Iron Pax is coming in September. Look for registration soon. It’s free, but you’ll pay in other ways.
    • Quad P for August is Running.
