YHC arrived at 5:05 to access the parking lot situation because no one likes to run on uneven unseen snowpack beneath two fresh inches of powder. Upon arrival only one person, Black Flag, had arrived for pre running and the parking lots were yet to be plowed. Site Q showed up and advised we move our vehicles as the plow moved in. A quick audible was called as the Blue Parade from the SMURPH headed over. So much for the nice parking lot, it’s the bumpy field for this beat down!

COT: Cliff Young was a 61 year old sheep farmer from Australia. He decided to run in an ultramarathon, 544 miles between Sydney and Melbourne. He showed up in his overalls and work boots while the other runners were in ‘proper’ attire. 

At the start of the racer the trained runners took off, following a run for 18 hours sleep for 6 model as they proceeded through the stages of the race. Cliff fell behind quickly and badly, so much so that he arrived at the first rest stop after everyone had gone to bed. He kept going. For 5 days he kept going, in the process he won the race. One of 6 runners to finish the race he beat second place by 10 hours and all the finishers broke the previous record for the distance.

Cliff showed up as a sheep farmer, showed up as himself and won a race he had no business winning. Today show up as yourself to help your team prepare for the task at hand.
