Are my fingers going to fall off?…

29 Degrees outside, cold iron Kettle Bells, wet grass and the Launch of a new Gear Site drew out of the fartsack 5 men that were on a mission…Complete annihilation of just about every muscle group in the body.  Strangely enough, there was a 6th man that beat us down, coming off the bench…Jack Frost!

Moleskin:

With a new site launch happening on a Saturday morning at 29 degrees outside, the fartsack was an excellent option for sure.  T-Claps all around to the guys that helped launch Olympus.  It was nice to run a Q where the whole group was not only keeping up, but making the Q’s look bad on a few occasions – Yankee, Alf and MM you guys are beasts!  Thank you for being a part of our new site launch and hope to see each of you there in the future. 

As for Jack Frost – it would be nice if you stayed away a while.  MM was wearing fingerless gloves, mine were wet from the dew and others were as well…made for a really tough routine holding a frozen iron bell.

As always, it’s an honor to be able to work with you guys!  On behalf of Gullah and myself, we owe  you some ACRT (Advanced Cellular Repair Technology aka.. Beers) soon!

Respectfully,

The Hoff and Gullah

Great maiden Q guys! My fingertips are still numb. Olympus is definitely worth the drive from Ballantyne.

Dang sorry to leave you hangin’ Hoff. I’m feeling alittle under the weather after #815 plus I got a foot injury that popped up Friday.It will probably take me out for awhile. Olympus is gonna be a site for beasts!

Great workout Hoff and Gullah. I think the temperatures dulled the pain. Was definitely feeling it the rest of the weekend. Looking forward to more next week.

Have to cop to not posting for the run. Dad patrol took over and I was out of time to run. Next time.
