Downey Fresh Morning

21 pax made there Friday morning downpainment at the Centurion this morning. After a thorough disclaimer, YHC handed out the “Downy” coupons (very disappointed there was not enough for each to have a set). There are more in the garage ready to be put into action.

Mosey to the main parking lot for some Mary.
Mason Twist-20
Knee up-10
Line up for sprints to each light pole with 5 Turkish Getups at each light pole.

Head back to the COT.


It was only a matter of time until someone realized that YHC had selected the 5lb Downys. T-Claps to Checkpoint for keeping me honest, and for nipping at my heels with the 10lbs on the Lasso Loop. I have been fighting a cold this week and cowardly chose the 5lb option. It will not happen again.

Great effort by the entire pax this morning! Nobody like running with weights, but that which does not kill you makes you stronger. For those doing the 10K Merkin Challenge, you got a 205 head start on your day.


Sign up to Q by putting your name on the schedule.
We need to see some new names on there men! We have a guest Q next week; Dredd will be delivering the pain this coming Friday.

Contact Champagne for tutoring opportunity in South Charlotte.
I know there are more announcements but I can’t remember.

The Lasso Loop sucked with the coupons, especially the climb back up to the start. I mistakenly thought it would be pretty easy but the added 20 lbs (Haggis and I toted the manly coupons around) made for some heavy cardio. My shoulders and biceps are letting me know that this am’s workout was a good one.

I thought Runstopper was disrespecting his elder when we headed over the the Lasso Loop by making Checkpoint carry the coupons but then I remembered Checkpoint is in better shape. Good call.

Great work this morning, JR. You and Vineyard were pushing me hard out there. Thanks for sharing your coupons with me after I showed up late. I hope to see you out in the gloom in the future.

Thanks for a great beatdown this morning, Escargot. I had never enjoyed the weight/aroma of Downy during a workout and it definitely increased the difficulty while improving the smell of the PAX.

Great Q Escargot. Also, as promised here is my contact information. Please email me if you are interested in helping with tutoring at Matthews Elementary, working with Christ Covenant. I need to get together the finalized list of Pax who want to help and reach out to them and setup a training session before we can help.

Also, if you are interested, you will need to go thru the CMS approval process in order to help with the aftershool program. Here is the process:
