Week of 5/22/23: Workouts this week; last week for most Dipsea practice

Hi Folks,

Just learned that our amazing world traveler and runner, HANS SCHMID has passed away while in Bali. He was snorkeling and had a heart attack during the outing. That is all the information I have for now. We will all miss his enthusiasm, his running ability (we all want to be able to run like Hans!), his wonderful photos that he shared on FB documenting all the unusual places in the word that he visited. I’m going to miss him at our Saturday workouts and to hear of his latest adventures.

Here is Hans on Denali , always the active runner , hiker and adventurer. What a full life he led!
Here is doing his Kettlebell Rack Carry during one of our Sat mor ing workout sessions. He was quite strong at his lean 115 lb body weight !

Note, that this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend; let me know later in the week if you will attend the Saturday workout or be out of town so that I have a head count.
