– Very solid effort by all the pax. This was a tough one that included 100 Burpees, close to 200 merkins and about 2 miles of running.
– Honey ___, various name changes were discussed for Honey Bee who had to depart after the KB pre workout. Given that he ran at 0500, perhaps Honey Beast is in order.
– Nice to have Hops back at Stonehenge as well as a special Kotters to Lex Luthor. LL is Qing the next Stonehenge and was defeintely in strong form.
– Overheard several pax commenting that they were anxius for Christmas to be over so that we would have a new theme. #workoutjustified
– Tclaps to Mighty Mite for leading the charge on everything – what a beast!

– Dec 24 convergence at Skunk Works, January 1 covergence at Mckee Road as well as Fredome Park.
– Stonehenge will converge at the Joe Davis 5K on January 4.
– Hope all pax have a Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you in the gloom in 2014!

“For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord”
– Luke 2:11

Solid Q as usual Dolphin. No claps to Frehley’s Comet for vaporizing the pax with his gaseous shrapnel in the parking deck…the humanity! T- claps, indeed, to Mighty Mite –> Beast. And also to Blowhole – definitely getting after it.
And what of the random dude pulling into the deck while we were finishing up there? Strange mumbling about some kids’ activity/nativity scene? Random….keep the kids under close watch.
Must correct one thing from the Thang brother Dolphin: it’s “Shore’s Shoulders” – introduced by Area51’s very own good doctor: The Shore.
