Several FNG’s to Base Camp posted this morning – welcome and hope to see you back.

We started off with a little April Fool’s joke of 50 burpees warmup but 11 hearty souls (Q not included) were ready to go for it.

One Jayhawk fan (Brisket) didn’t need the Michigan Round of 3’s to hate Michigan his hate started Friday night.

By the time we were done the April Fool’s joke was on CMD as his plan was a little aggressive for Base Camp standards (and for his own good).  For those that are counting we did get in 33 burpees after all.

Great send off by Strange Brew – good luck with that shoulder.
