Lord of the Flies

17 men gathered around the shovelflag on a nice spring morning to put a solid downPAINment on the weekend. They expected to be smoked by the end, but little did they know how they were going to get there…

– Flies! Lots of flies! Little critters – gnats or sandflies (no one bothered to properly identify), buzzing around the PAX nearly the entire time. Made for an interesting time seeing, breathing, chewing, spitting. Thankfully we kept things moving enough to see clearly every once in a while.
– Between the flies, the stumps and the rocks, I’m pleasantly surprised to report no injuries — except for a guy named Piggy who limped off early, clutching his broken spectacles to his face, muttering something about leaving before things got really nasty…
-Strong work by the PAX this morning. Much mumblechatter on anything involving leg work, seems a number of folks were still nursing their wounds from Kevlar. Mumblechatter was punched in the teeth by the jump squats and SMCs. Spirits were lifted once the stiffness was beat out.
– Props to Enos. First week in the group and he shows up 4 out of the last 5 days? Guts his way through sprints and runs while nursing a sore hamstring? When he heard that we take Sundays off in SouthClt, he had either a look of surprise or relief, hard to tell. Either way, keep at it brother. Looking forward to seeing you on Monday.

That’s cold hearted… capturing O’Tannenbaum as “Old Tannenbaum” in the back blast.

Great work by Young Love and Lex Luthor on Q.

A51 faithful put the hammer down on Saturday – good work by all. Didn’t recognize Joker without his lid.
