Moleskin:

  • I have been wanting to do this one since last Good Friday. I bounced the idea off many people with mixed enthusiasm, but finally decided to go for it. You have to start somewhere.
  • It was great to have Homer join up from F3 Rock Hill. He saw it on Twitter and was in the area for Spring Break.
  • Huge thanks to Walk-Off for providing me with the raw materials to make our cross.
  • This was not easy, but when you compare it to what has been done for us, it was nothing.
  • Please take some time to remember what Jesus did for us and enjoying the freedom we have in Him.
  • Yo-Yo and I did a mile before 0515 to get an EC warm-up done.
  • Textbooks make great Ruck Weights!
  • I am honored that 5 PAX took time out of their morning to do this with me.
  • This will be back next year, we will see how things go!
