25 Pax strong this morning at the Rock.  The Rock has become a Boulder.  But nothing the Pax can’t overcome!  Much thanks to OBT and Dredd for the fellowship.  Dredd with the constant chatter but awesome leadership.  Does OBT ever get a word in when those two are together?  And thanks to OBT for taking us out with a strong prayer.

2 FNGs today at the Rock: Haggis – Scottish. Boxer. Stone Mason.  Need we say more?  And Tater – Clemson, Dental Implant Salesman — more to be said when you return!  Great to have you both with us and look forward to seeing you again soon.

The Shore introduced the Boulders to the Rock, which turned just 2 months old today – Aye!  Much more to be accomplished at the Rock.

Heard some bellyaching at the beginning with 1-legged merkins and burpees not being easy enough for warmup.  “Sounds to me like you’re daunted! Are you men or amoebas?” (Name that movie.)

Scaling NorthFace with 180+ lbs. on your back is no small task.  Nice work men.  More of that to come.

See you soon on another gloomy morning!

Hops and The Shore,
Strong workout this morning. My favorite was the partner carries. Looking forward to more of those.

Nice to have Dredd and OBT with us. I had heard that Dredd adds some humor to the workouts, and he didn’t disappoint.

Thank you Brother. It was great being at the #Rock yesterday. Great facility, great PAX. Love the #Not-A-Baptists.

I thought I did disappoint at one point however, because one of the PAX said to @TigerRag (who was next to me) “Hey, I thought the guys who started this thing were posting here today?” @TigerRag laughed and pointed at me and the querying PAX looked at me like “that dude?” #ExtremeDisappointment.

Another time I met a PAX’ M for the first time and she said “you’re Dredd? I thought you’d be a lot taller.” We both laughed and for lack of anything else to say I said “Well, I like to think of myself as tall on the inside.” Doesn’t even make sense, does it? HA.

Aye brother… “tall on the inside”… channeling Confucius, or maybe just Yogi Bear?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
