7 1/4 beasts were awakened early on this wet / soggy morning (some earlier than others) and entered the gloom to feast on today’s daily dose of downpainment.  More to come on the some earlier than others and the 1/4.

On your bellies but don’t get comfortable.  On QICs command “GO get it Boyz” — jailbreak to the VSF.


Although a bit damp, cool temperatures again this morning which is a welcomed change from this summer’s heat and humidity.  However, I think it has the PAX dazed and confused fast forwarding their mindset to October and the fall.  Quite a few comments on how we should be watching football or stockpiling the candy bins for Halloween trick -or- treaters.  Not yet my friends, Not YET – Old Man Winter won’t be making an appearnce early.  Sister Summer will remind us of that this week coming up.

YHC was tempted to added Hardwood to the list of PAX who put in some work today and posted but thought better of it and we’ll just cover it in the moleskin.  Early reports prior to launch were that Hardwood was fartsacking and opting to hit the gym instead.  Comments such as he doesn’t like to get wet, dislikes the rain and just isn’t a mudder.  It was nice to see him finally post at 745ish only to watch from afar at the recycling center to watch in amazement at the strong beastly men.  Hope to see you next week HW weather permitting of course.  We love having you out.

We launched with 6 strong and increased to 7 when Cocoon could be seen in the distance motoring across the field like Seabiscuit #thouroughbred as the PAX was enjoying Balls to the Wall.  Saw a little Sass out of Blue Print this am when QIC Countertop suffering from 02 deprivation and requested a 10 count but asked “what’s your name again”?  Response #YouNamedMe!!!!  Although, he backed it up by being out front for the entire workout.

Spielberg, great to have you out today and co-Q’s really appreaciated your energy and encouragement to all for the entire 60 minutes!  #spiritaward #ivegotspirithowboutyou….  Keep coming out brother and look forward to seeing you post next week.  #youlive1mile away #noexcuses!

Also saw some competitiveness out there in the closing.  As QIC Z directs the PAX on their bellies for the jailbreak up the hill to the VSF, he hears Electric Slide next to him say “I got YOU”!!!  #ivandrago #iwillbreakyou…..  and he bolted up the hill on command at Mach 3 as if shot out of a cannon.  #wheels.

Hairband, although you’ll always be known as Powder Puff to me brother — Not being satisfied with only the Saturday workout and posting at the weekdays, you noticeably continue to get stronger and faster at each and every workout.  #3weekstopsuntilyourQdebut!!!!


Please keep Lisa (M-Electric Slide) in your thoughts and prayers as she’s on the waiting list desperately needing a dual transplant.  Please also keep the family of the SV Middles school Teacher who tragically died in a car accident 10 days ago in your thoughts and prayers as well.  The guilt here 15 yr old daughter (driving) must feel as if insurmountable.
