Weather: Cold in 20s and clear.
YHC had received reports that the path around the pond was clear and decided we would stick to that loop for safety reasons. YHC also arrived early for some recon and saw a few icy spots, but wasn’t too concerned. YHC only went about a quarter of the way around, and this is why he did not adjust the route. Once we started, we realized we would likely have someone injured and decided on an audible.
We did a warmup of SSH x15 IC
Then a brief relay race with lunge walks. Team 2 was the winners. YHC decided to go ahead and call the morning to a close, so those wishing to get miles could do so in a safe environment.

Devo: Perseverance “Perseverance is more than endurance. It is endurance combined with absolute assurance and certainty that what we are looking for is going to happen. Perseverance means more than just hanging on, which may be only exposing our fear of letting go and falling. Perseverance is our supreme effort of refusing to believe that our hero is going to be conquered.” https://utmost.org/the-discipline-of-spiritual-perseverance/
Moleskin: YHC should have taken a full lap to assess conditions. Q Failure.
This did give an opportunity for some 2nd F at Dunkin’ Donuts. Snowden mentioned that his recon didn’t observe some of the slick spots. We came to the conclusion that there was obvious sabotage. An unnamed PAX suggested that this may have been the work of two saboteurs that go by the aliases of Floppy and Hollywood. It was an obvious conspiracy to prevent PAX from getting their bingo squares.
