I was kind of hoping to wake up to something like having happened in the night. I suppose there is still a week left for it to happen. Ha ha.

Damn, I thought getting up at 4:30a was early. The individuals were informed they gotta get on board a bus at 3:30 tomorrow for who the hell knows what

The athletes are flying somewhere for their first event. I predict somewhere in California, or somewhere in the western US that is higher elevation.

I think they're going to Aromas to the original Games location to repeat the hill run workout.

Re: 2016 Games Banter...starting off with Murph

I'm weirdly excited to see where they're going, and for what today.

Also, the way Castro said 'there will be some things that will scare you' (or whatever his exact quote was), in combination with the GLOCK prize makes me think there will be a shooting event of some kind this year. That's possibly where they're going today. 5.11 tactical pants? It kind of adds up.

They're boarding a flight to San Jose. Either one of our guesses could still be right.

You might be right!

Except... why fly? Couldn't they find a shooting range within driving distance to accommodate an event?

My only guess is logistics. Finding a range to accommodate what they're trying to do might have been difficult, and may require a plane ride.
