In Team Spearhead Pathfinder training the motto is “When given a choice…do the harder thing.” Today that choice was made for the Q by the pax. Flanders scouted out the AO the night before and gave us the green light to use hills (previously unable due to poor conditions from all the rain) for some continued Mud Run training. This made the Q change his initial workout plan and it was for the better. The hill work was definitely the harder thing. Good to see some old faces come back out (Hobo, Threadcount) and to see Roscoe come back from his first workout yesterday. TClaps to Roscoe at 63 and Moped at 72 years of age who continue to come out and lay it out there. They could not do everything on the program today but they didn’t fartsack it. THEY DID THE HARDER THING and that was to show up and push themselves forward.
