Kotters to several PAX who were back following various times away.

Matlock ninja’d the kickoff this a.m. materializing out of thin air following the first 200 meter burpee/merkin – sprint painstation that Far Side inflicted upon the group.  Matlock’s tardiness was forgiven with the announcement that he had run to the workout.  Strong work brother.

Turkey leg lowered the boom in the -00 us sprint.

T-claps to Icicle and Yoda (2.0s) who were running neck and neck toward the head of the pack as we all endured the Rugby Pitch Burpee Ladder and Ark Loader.

Skywalker’s 2.0 (fka thumper) was renamed to avoid confusion that he might be one of Cottontails many offspring.  Staying true to the Skywalker/Star Wars theme, and some help from dad, he is now officially Yoda.

Coal Miners Daughter brought the pain as always

Jordache refused to take one yard of break in the bear crawls – strong brother.

Special note that Cottontail’s daughter is doing well after recovering from pneumonia.  Thanks to all who had Cottontail and family in thoughts and prayers over that past couple of weeks.
