-We are averaging mid-twenties to low-thirties turnout so glad this Thursday offering is making a difference and folks keep coming out to push themselves through the Hydra gloom. We stay on the move at Hydra and mix it up with the 3 headed Q’s (49er, Donkey Kong, YHC). Anyone ready to stand in and serve up an offering let any of us know and we will turn you lose for a workout, or 1/2 a workout.

-3 FNG’s posted. Welcome to the PAX – Vapor, Rentacop, and Abomb!  Has anyone seen that new FNG Mall cop brought out several weeks ago who disappeared mid-workout? We think the Hydra Monster may have eaten him. Mall Cop – what’s the end to that story? By the way, I may flex my Q muscles and perform a rename for rentacop. We have a Mall cop already, and since the last name screams ZZ Top we should go with one of their biggest hits, Legs! So welcome to rentacop rename Legs. If the name Legs happens to be taken, we will pick from the list of zz top songs for a fine replacement.

-The run/bike to workout is now a standard Hydra challenge during the warmer months. Those living more than 1 mile away can meet at the Food Lion in Candlewyck and run 1 mile to OPE.

-Remember we all have varying levels of experience. Do what you can, modify where you need, just keep coming back, and keep pushing yourself. Those that keep coming begin to crave more gloom.


-South Charlotte T-shirts are in. Mall Cop is handing out at workouts over next several days.
