5.20.19 – Showing the Ruck Up

AO Mastodon – Monday, 5.20.19 (Captain Crunch – QIC)

An overnight dip into the mid 40’s, with a red-orange dawn through scattered clouds in the east and a large, dark, threatening patch of cloud in the Northwest (it dissipated about half-way through). After months of solo Mondays or duo-rucking with Archive, we had FOUR (!) HIMs hit the ground this Monday ready for some work. Hoser was there warming up when YHC waddled up (spare ruck in front and shovel flag in hand). Banks and one of our newest PAX Noodles rolled up to show all the other Wheaton boys how to #GetSome on a Monday. We divided up the weight and got after it. Four PAX doubles our previous record for Mondays. #MustardSeeds

COR/NOR/COT:

Prayers for traveling PAX this week (Archive / Banks) — Prayers for Noodles transfer application to Elgin, which should be processed soon. — Gratitude and prayer for fitness, fellowship, and faith for all HIMs in the region, the nation, and those who we haven’t EH’d yet.

MOLESKIN:

It was a VERY different experience being non-solo this time. Inspiring to see others showing up and an answer to almost a half-year of Monday morning prayer time. Excited to see where it goes from here and motivated to get our unofficial Ruck Club off the ground.
