[Posted by TR on behalf of Splinter, subbing for Semi-Gloss]
YHC’s first Q at Skunkworks provided some jitters last night, hence actually wrote this weinke out. 26 PAX including 1 FNG used google maps and twitter to find the substitute location for one of Area 51’s finest workouts. Expectations always run high at skunks. Hopefully YHC delivered.

Semi Gloss enticed YHC to sub for him in return for a free lunch. Then proceeded to be slightly nervous last night and redid the Weinke a couple of times. Actual number of redos will remain secret to avoid future heckling.
Hard to get a good glimpse of everyone when YHC is struggling to make it through, but Busch, Bananas, Fletch, Run Stopper, Crab Cake seemed to be putting in strong work.
The ten counts between sets were much needed. Thankful for all who gave 10 counts except for Cottonmouth. His Ten count is really a 3 count. Future Q’s never ask Cottonmouth for a 10 count.
There has been some banter among the PAX about whether there should or should not be running at at KB workout and if so, to what extent. Supposedly Hops had put the smokeboots to skunks last week so YHC felt the need to keep it balanced with lots of iron reps. When announced on Twitter that this was the plan last night, Brown favorited the tweet. I think because Brown is the President of the “I hate running club.” You can buy a Car sticker from him that says 0.0 (I don’t run). Point being, most PAX should have put in 400 to 500 reps with the bells plus all the cardio exercises thrown in to keep the heart rate up.
After COT some PAX discussed changing just christened TI83 to Jurgen due to him being a soccer coach at CDS, and world cup time seemed to be fitting. TI83 was a mouthful. Sound off in the comments if you have an opinion.
Sanka and Fletch decided to wear matching shirts today. It was cute.
Tclaps to Header and Stone Cold for waiting on YHC for the pre-run so that YHC did not have to sad clown 3 miles in the gloom.
Tclaps to whoever took us out. Can’t remember. Scratch n win?
