Happy Burpee Day

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Iron Horse (Founders Park)

Two ironic events occurred this morning foreshadowing YHC’s belated birthday beatdown – the temperature outside was a cool 49 degrees and your YHC turned 49 years old last week.  The second was a raccoon sighting immediately after our warm up during the mosey run over the Great Field on our way for a raccoon crawl (this was planned anyway, but it was fun to tease the PAX that the raccoon spontaneously inspired a change of plans). In the end, 12 PAX were primed to celebrate Happy Burpee Day.

It’s been almost 1 year since YHC first posted and I am grateful for the men who help me be accountable by showing up early in the mornings.  I could not and would not do what I did today without them.  They continue to inspire and motivate me in being a better man.  The F3 Credo rings true:  Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you find him.  I am a better man today than 1 year ago and I am thankful.
