Area 51 2-Year Anniversary (Convergence?)

Area 51 2-Year Anniversary (Convergence?)

11 men braved the 60 degree temperatures to endure a beating at the hands of Slapshot and Salt Lick on this, the two year anniversary of Area 51. Joker noted that the workout was begun 2 years ago today – it was the one and only workout in south CLT for some time. Now there are 100-150 pax on any given Saturday at a myriad of workouts across the PIE CRUST (aka South Charlotte). This workout didn’t disappoint.

With all the new workouts staring all the time, we forget what a bold move it was when launched himself into the unknown and planted #A51. #Pioneer #TClaps

10 years ago

Joker is the Amerigo Vespucci of A51. We all stand on his shoulders and perhaps even more so, the guys who fell for it and actually showed up to that first workout. Slapshot and Ocho Cinco were there at that first workout–and today.

(Note: it’s helpful to mention anniversary celebrations prior to the backblast. I would have joined you in my red party shorts. #guythigh)

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
