The hill was angry at 13 Pax this day, my friends. Like an old man returning soup at a deli.

- After last week’s ego-deflating 30-30 tabata with the Ms’ hand weights, it was time to feel like a man again and move heavy things up and down the hill. Workman-like effort by all. T-Claps.
- Pretty Boy Quarterback started training this morning for his annual trip to the Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling Race by rolling the 150 lb-plus tractor tire down the hill. Toward the buses. Toward an unidentified Pax, head down, pounding out the mountain climbers. Thankfully, all personnel and property emerged unblemished.
- Incidentally, despite the glamorous handle, Pretty Boy Quarterback prefers to chase his Cheese Roll incognito. YHC has it on good authority that the gentleman in the green shirt at 2:04 in the clip from the 2009 race is none other than our very own. Link HERE.
- With 13 Pax distributed among only 7 stations, each Pax got 5 to 7 cracks at the mountain climbers. At 2 minutes per, that’s ten to fourteen minutes of scratching pavement. Strong work.
