I’m already hurtin’ thinking about the pain to be added to the muscle fatigue at DV tomorrow.
Nice work by Stone Cold & Ray Charles….I think Ray Charles will his virgin solo QIC at SkunkWorks in the very near future.

Chatter from pax that the Q should take us out on a date prior to the new Skunk Humper exercise next time! All kidding aside it was a great creative workout today Stone Cold and Ray Charles! There are no more excuses for Ray Charles now, I expect to see him as Q on a regular basis.

Thanks to Dora for going back out with me to run for an extra mile after the COT as it’s a new weekday workout tradition for our Leatherneck team. The South CLT team #Clydesdale on a mission to get nimble and quick before the Mud Run.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
