Moleskine:  Interesting morning in which the QIC learned alot.  The idea was to do 4 corners as outlined above. However, the Q clearly confused the Pax who were going up and down the field in odd patterns, asking each other for directions, asking the Q for directions, asking the lady walking her dog for directions, going in opposite directions, looking for One Direction, etc.  Unfortunately, we were unable to do the rest of the planned Q (lunge walking, merkins, bear crawling, and pull ups) which is sad because we clearly need more bear crawl practice according to JV.  Lessons learned:  keep it simple at 5:15 am, bring a white board, shut off the fountains, and make sure there’s no dog poop near the location of 4x4s.

Regardless of the obstacles, all Pax kept moving, sweating, and groaning so the morning was a success.  I appreciate the effort of all in attendance and am made better every time I step into the gloom with you all.  Keep pushing forward and push back the fartsack.  We all get better every day.
