The Pain Train goes to Tombstone

Rite Aid is an OG of OGs. We have many high caliber HIMs among the ranks for NETN and he is without a doubt atop the list. Often a man of few words, when he does utter them as the QIC they are usually followed by pain. Rite Aid loves some cardio and a good hand-release merkin. I’ve joined him for many workouts and Elvis is frequently sighted. A memory that sticks out was a Sunday when we met to log some miles around JC. As we approached the McDonalds near the Mall, Elvis made an appearance. I recall logging more than a mile running circles around the parking lot as the employees stared on, likely curious why I was circling the golden arches like a vulture awaiting a Big Mac.

Revisiting F3JC Day 1…with golf balls

Great opportunity this weekend to share what we have in F3 NETN. Sign up for a slot to cover the booth with a few other PAX. Nothing like laying the EH down drive-by mode. Kardashian should really make a sheet for sign ups???
