Insanely warm for min-November. About 50 with a decent breeze. Weird overnight conditions – no dew at all. Will have to rely solely on perspiration for evidence of commitment to the beatdown.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Last week I had the privilege of chaperoning my daugher’s 7th grade class trip to Washington DC. Friday morning before we left we were able to attend the changing of the guard and a wreath laying with taps at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It’s one of the most moving things you can witness there in Washington, and if you can watch that without misty eyes and a lump in your throat you’re a harder man than I. We shouldn’t isolate our thankfulness and gratitude to God and these honored dead to two days a year. In some countries, the gathering we participated in today could have ended in jail or worse for us. Let’s try daily not to take what we have been blessed with for granted, and pray for those that are in worse situations.
I hate that everyone wasn’t able to make the GrowRuck, but barring that I can’t think of a better way to spend the morning. I missed everyone this week while I was hacking up my lungs! Hope you men can avoid the crud going around. Big props to Peach Fuzz for rounding out the burpees with an extra effort! Great drive from everyone this morning.
2.0 Workout this afternoon.
