Scout related discussions! 

 

*Note: You can participate in guild discussions regardless of your chosen guild. 

 

Built for distance and efficiency rather than strength and power, you can outlast any animal on the planet. Your muscles are designed with endurance in mind, and you can cover great distances whenever necessary.

 

* Fictional example: Legolas of the Woodland Realm (Lord of the Rings), Tauriel (The Hobbit)

 

* Real-world example: Rita Jeptoo, Boston Marathon record holder; Jan Frodeno, 2008 Olympic gold medalist and 2015 Ironman champion

 

* Typical Activities: Running, Swimming, Biking

“There's only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you've got to be kind.”

As a self identified Ranger who mostly does scout-like training this made me laugh

 

Good so far! I am also trying to convince coworkers to run a 5K together in the spring (pandemic allowing)

I see a few familiar handles here, looking forward to running with y’all this year!

Hi Radost! It'll be a good year for running I think.
