In looking for an AO to Q on this 4/26, I thought of making a trip to Durham and visit some of our brothers from the northeast. Tobacco Road is only 10 miles from Briar Chapel as the crow flies, but our great NC forests and winding roads make it for a longer trip that […]

9 PAX showed up at Tabacco Road ready to celebrate birthdays. Two, Sweats and Toolbox, were so ready, that they showed up early for a 4-mile ruck. In honor of Brick’s birthday, he was given the power to stop the workout at any point and have the group do burpees. The rest of the workout […]
