Pledge, Announcements, Prayer Requests:
Devo: “The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense.” Proverbs 27:9
Moleskin: Redo got in some pre BC ruck miles and met a couple of the “locals” who happen to live in the woods adjacent to the trail. Fortunately, Redo works in the mental health industry and was able to defuse the situation without incident. A couple thoughts here: 1. Homeless people are generally homeless for a reason – because they have schizophrenia or some other mental disorder and cannot function in normal society. They are generally a greater risk to themselves than others, but care should always be taken when encountering such individuals. – especially when they are shouting obscenities at 0445. And 2. this is a good reminder to run/ruck in the dark in pairs when possible. If you must go alone, like I do very often, stay vigilant and be aware of your surroundings. Like maybe NOT wear earbuds?
Ditch and Creek PAX, please be aware of your new neighbors when running that route, and alert GCPD if encounters like this continue.
