CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: National suicide
“At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth . . . could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years . . . If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”
ABRAHAM LINCOLN 1838
MOLESKIN: A little unorthodox for the Berm but it was nice to feel those lungs burning. Almost 40 minutes of sprints made the time fly by. We had to be careful as patches of ice on the track were a bit treacherous. The same made box jumps on the benches an unwise decision. Paper Trail was smoking us on most of the sprints, long and short distances. Big Top was a track star on the pavement. Bruce’s 1 mile time was fast. Beauty Shop and I’s mile time felt like it was under 8. With 1 minute left I had us on our six but Beauty Shop complained that we weren’t doing more sprints so we sprinted up the berm a few times. A few more Clydesdales would have made this one a bit of a challenge to lead but still doable.
