QIC: Mr. Clean & Vila

Low 30’s, felt colder but ABSOLUTELY PERFECT for the Inaugural Run & Ruck at The Griff 

The Disclaimer


Given swiftly.  This is a new adventure, take care of yourself, modify if necessary, and we will NEVER leave the SIX behind!


Pax took an easy, slow, saunter across the road (Vila explained the importance of designating crossing guards properly to protect the Pax), into the parking lot, between the football and baseball field, and truly begin the journey of the Inaugural Run/Ruck at The Griff.

Inspired by Ringwald, YHC mentioned drinking the Kool-Aid the night before the post.  YHC carried this inspiration into today, and it was simply this: DRINK THE KOOL-AID. Kool-Aid is cheap, and easy to access but when people try it they seem to love it.  This has some similarities to F3 and Rucking. So, drink that Kool-Aid and discover it is extremely rewarding for the very low price of FREE! Take that first step…
