AYG to launch



Posted Centurion yesterday exactly 2 weeks since last post. That one hurt. So did this one. Nice to have time off but tough getting back after it.

Alf was absolutely crushing it this morning. He gave a few shameless plugs for WAMRAP. 45 minutes of redline. Can’t wait to try it.

This crew put in a solid 60 minutes of work. Thankful for the fellowship this morning. Great way to start a weekend.

Almost forgot, Runstopper had tights on. and a long sleeve shirt with a t-shirt over that, with a hoodie over that. Attire elicited commentary.

Title comes from text correspondence with Purell. He told me he would see me Saturday a few days ago, then said he was going to smartsack last night. Needed some rest. No doubt about that. I think he Q’s about every other time he posts. Anyway, cracked me up when he texted the following: “Can’t handle your kind of beatdown that’s for sure.” I don’t often laugh out loud, but I did when I read that.
