Christmas is a state of mind

5 PAX arrived at 5 am for an Uzi led Ruck, took off, went back and got Champ who arrived at 5:05, continued to do Ruck things. When YHC returned he was overcome with a renewed Christmas spirit as 7 more PAX waited patiently in the lot to make it 13, a site record for […]

Dos Doras

6 PAX gathering on a frosty post-Christmas morning to jump back into the routine after the holiday hiatus. YHC was thrilled to see 5 friendly faces as lack of slack activity the night before had visions of a solo post dancing in his head. Not sure how hard YHC would have been able to push […]

Let’s burn some dust here. Eat my rubber.

3 PAX showed up for a run on one of the Hap, Hap, Happiest times of the year.  YHC came decked out with his Griswold Blackhawks jersey (Better movie than Die Hard, Griswold) and Christmas lights.  Sadly due to the temps, the Christmas lights weren’t having it and wouldn’t stay lit.  After some brief chatter […]

But one possible etymology is that Boxing Day was “the first week-day after Christmas-day, observed as a holiday on which post-men, errand-boys, and servants of various […]
