Preblast:

All right. Running on Friday. We will keep some good social distance for those at the Wreck Center at 6:30am. Those who don’t post at the Wreck, please plan to send your results.

The running Thang will be posted when you wake. Make it a surprise! The preview is 9-8-7-6-5.

BackBlast:

4 PAX gathered for this well socially-distanced workout. It was great to have @Monsanto with us for run club.

We ran out far and then tried to make it back. Not so easy, but it pushed us all to chase the finish line.

Big ups to @Kodak who brought coffee so we could enjoy some conversation after.

The new normal is out there somewhere. For now I am glad that we can connect via F3.

Today is the chosen day for Mental Battle across F3 nation. This Q did not get his act together. No justice for such an important topic. We will have to pick it up soon.

Here is more information provided by @RA:

Mental health is something that everyone needs to mind. The post above puts it in important, stark terms.

Here is another angle…We as men are not known for expressing ourselves or modeling for our family and friends. Toughing it out is not helpful when it comes to our inner life.

Boys / Men – either way we have work to do. We men were once boys.
