YHC did some sad clown pre-KB as none of the usuals joined.  Pre-run for Swanson.  Humid morning today.  Triple Nickel tour was tough.  A good bit of running and burpees always a crowd pleaser.  The bonus return trip up each hill to the next rep spot was appreciated by Purple Haze.  Not a lot of mumblechatter out there today.  A lot of movement and no 10 counts.  Merkin count confirmed by pax at 230, though may have missed a few above.  Strong work by all pax today.  Iron Horse took us out in BOM.  Always a pleasure to lead at Anvil.
