102 REALLY?

Laura and I have been home from last weekends La Jolla RKC for the less than 12 hours and our bodies are still buzzing. This was the hottest RKC EVER! The first 2 days reached temps of 102 degrees. Holy s@#! that sucked. Heat, moisture and new bells created the perfect storm. No flesh was safe from the Iron.

Team Kilt rocked the whole weekend! It was asking so much just to be outside on days like that let alone getting your ass handed to you for 23 hours over three days. I was like a proud Dad watching all of them finish with heart. What a great job I have.

Laura also went through the RKC last weekend. I told her that it would be the hardest thing she has ever done and that would have been without the 102 temps. I was incredibly proud of her as she marched across the field covered in dirt, sweat and blood. She finished like the true warrior that she is, that's my baby.

Again I leave the RKC weekend wondering how I could ever want to do anything other then the job that I have. It inspires me so much to help people do thing they think they can't and I know they can. Power to all the new RKCs it's well deserved.

Franz,

Great to see you the three of you as well. Laura and I will be in the area in two weeks. We should try to get together.
