AYG home for COT


A great, beautiful morning to be working out (there was even a layer of light fog hanging over the big field in front of the sanctuary. Lots of mumble chatter, particularly at the outset. Purple Haze was anxious to get going, as at 5:30:15 he asked, “What time is this workout going to get going?” Gummy gave YHC some lip about a lack of creativity in the warm up. #justwaitgummyitscoming

Great work on the hills of North Face. YHC had made a special request of the Church staff to have it mowed to 3” in preparation of our arrival. They obliged, and we hit the hill hard. The Ring of Fire in theory was a good idea, but based on the form looking around the circle about halfway through, I don’t think the pax liked it all that much. The final beat down at Entrance 4 proved to be a killer, and even with having to audible based on time constraints (the group can thank Champagne for that one), we still got in 70 burpees ON TOP OF the exercises going up the incline.

T-claps for Intel, who posted remotely from San Francisco at the same hour as we were working out at Anvil (yes, 2:30 a.m. PT). YHC had sent him the wienkie Tuesday evening, and rumor has it he was complaining as much as the pax in Charlotte.

Purple Haze closed us out strong in prayer in the middle of a wet, stinky BOM.

Hannibal – great Q today. I was smoked. Thanks for the lead. I was just trying to keep you honest. If I’m yelling at you when you are Q its because what you are doing is working. Aye. Iron Sharpens Iron.

I asked Younglove to be my sherpa on Northface, but he wouldn’t wait up. Great Q Hannibal. Fell asleep during Karate Kid 2 with my kids at 7:15. The fog machine at the top of NF was a nice touch.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
