Cane Sets the Merkin Bar High

Warning had gone out the night before that this would be a merkin heavy workout and I don’t think it disappointed.  The goal was to set the record for number of merkins completed in a workout (although i am not sure what the previous record was).  We didn’t quite reach my anticipated number but 364 merkins is strong.  We also got a fair amount of running in and summitted North Face 4 times.
Strong work by all!

Prohibition was one of the missing 4. Nice lead by Cane. Nice way to get a good number of daily merkins out of the way for 10KMerkins challenge before 7 a.m.

That one hurt. KB didn’t make it any easier, but that is never the point. Solid Q. The jump on my daily 500 was nice.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
