We had shirts OFF this morning. Probably the last weekend for that until... May?

I didn't even know you guys were racing at AF yesterday. Seems like Brayden mixed it up pretty well with some of the top guys in the area!

Yep, he beat Rory and was just a few seconds behind Andrew Brewer.

A seriously impressive race!

Love the extra protein from those runs.

I'm squeaking in another R2R2R the Friday after Thanksgiving Rob. Drive down Friday, run Saturday. Probably be a group run including several women. Last chance this year...

Another R2R2R?

Yep, a few guys asked about getting one more in.
