Posted on

When Sweats put out the call yesterday that the Q Sheet had an opening, YHC jumped at the chance to lead the brave souls that came to #TheBigDance.  In thinking of a thematic approach to the Q Plan, the date 2/20 kept resonating.  YHC has been wanting to do a work out that was high […]

all my secret trails

  A group of intrepid adventurers assembled in a dark, gloomy parking lot at 06:00 this morning. For mid-February, the weather was actually reasonably pleasant and we warmed up quickly.
