Painfest 2013: Super Bowl Shuffle to Suicide Burpees

16 PAX, including 2 returning FNGs, braved the frozen tundra as temp gauge indicated 28 degrees at the start.  However, the blood was flowing after first 1/2 hour and several of the PAX were lightening their load a layer at a time.

An official welcome to Sprague… a transfer from Metro… now living in the hear of Charlotte South. Sprague likes red wine, kittens, long walks on the beach… and wind sprints.

As much as I’d love to perpetuate the myth and build the reputation, I have to own up to the fact that I can only be in one place at a time. Only one post for me last Saturday – Area 51.
