The BackBlast:

Weather-  Florida in July (it was humid)

At 5:14:30, YHC began to explain the plan for today in greater detail.  The PAX, fresh off completing their homework from Slack the night before, had questions, all of which were answered with the plan.  The plan- complete the figure 8 as a PAX to warm up the bodies.  Once back at the fountain, each PAX had their own segment to hunt a PR.  Whether it was the small loop, the big loop, or the figure 8, pick your poison and attempt your personal best.  In all, 9 of the 13 in attendance gave it a shot.  8 of those 9 set a PR on their pre-determined segment.  As for the 1, YHC tried and came up short but did not fail.  Failure would be defined as not trying.  And that was the message of the day- whether at home, at work, or otherwise, if you have been putting something off, a new way to approach a situation, that tough conversation, try it.  To try is to do.  Regardless of the outcome, you will not fail.  You may learn, but you will not fail.  Failure will only be found in the not trying.

Also, four PAX braved the bridge this fine Gloom.
