Vacationing in Cape Quad

Posted on

Thanks to work and vacation travel, YHC has been out the gloom routine for a couple of weeks.  While away, YHC lived vicariously through the PAX Asheville Spartan updates on Slack.  In particular, the tire flip (an obstacle I never had the privilege to attempt) peaked my interest.  The muddy conditions made it damn near impossible […]

YHC figured it was time to check on the progress in the gloom. Warmup: Good […]

We will need new suits…
