Rick is ready to throw down....with Andy on deck.
First I have to thank everyone who came out to have a little fun in the woods. Those of you who brought beer for me....you all rock! Elaine and Neal...Thank You both for the goodies you brought.....I think I ate 7 of those wraps before the night was over. It was after midnight before I made it home. Sammy, Jacob, Steve, Garton, Nate, Nick, and Jordan were all that was left for the last couple hours. In those couple hours we killed a case and a half of beer.

Hanging around after the Rage for some social time:) A few photos
An interesting run of thee Rage this time. An almost unbelievable record time is set by Jordan Johnson 19:25....an incredible 5:22 faster then his last weeks run. Seems unbelievable, but I asked Jordan and he looked me in the face and stated he ran the same course as last week. Good enough for me as I don't know the mate, but we have an easy way of making sure:) Then I forgot his damn swag...next one my brutha. I believe most of us got a beer or 2 though. Stay tuned for next weeks night run.
