Closing notes:
My goal was to push you past your comfort level today and harden your mind, as well as keep on schedule, and I hope I was successful. As much as I bragged about my footwear and the benefits of getting your feet wet, I think my feet fared worst of all, as my feet were numb ice blocks at the end. Also, thank you to the AOQ and the other Ridgers for great attitudes and helping me balance optimum pacing and keeping everyone together. #leavenomanbehind #leavenomanwhereyoufindhim
One day closer to the Tough.
TD out
