Woah that is quite fast after a race. Like I said your trails are making you faster than ever.

Fast fast Joe.

what's up slow

From DaleG on Fri, Oct 21, 2016 at 18:29:39 from

Yeah, where on earth is Joe? I keep checking every day and though I better say something.

From Yasir on Thu, Oct 27, 2016 at 11:39:04 from

same here. Joe we need you back its not as funny around here :(

From DaleG on Thu, Oct 27, 2016 at 12:28:55 from

I wonder if Joe is on any other social media. Kinda strange that he jus stopped without a word since.

From Dan on Thu, Oct 27, 2016 at 18:38:10 from

Joe is using Strava... I, like you guys, tried to keep him double posting/logging.

From DaleG on Thu, Oct 27, 2016 at 19:30:36 from

Oh dang. Well, tell him we miss him over here. Thanks for the update.

From SlowJoe on Sun, Nov 06, 2016 at 12:49:18 from

Sorry all. Combination of no spare time anymore, injured foot for the last several weeks, and use of Strava (I feel really guilty but it's so friggin fast and easy - my phone immediately uploads my run when my watch gets within Bluetooth range of it...cmon!)

Thanks for checking in, not sure if I'll pick FRB up again...maybe when life slows down a hair. Feel free to find me on strava if you're on it. My last name is spelled Sierra-Charlie-hotel-mike-alpha-lima (sorry for the phonetics, I'm still scared of the internet!).
