Keep Calm and……avoid tree stumps

KId Stump Steps

YHC had been putting off the VQ and the little voice said “do it” last week and before I could think twice I had a place to lead thanks to Madame Tussaud. I was excited to get to Q a bootcamp with gear! Nice fall morning with a light drizzle and a plan. Burn the shoulders and forearms and keep mumble chatter at bay.

I heard some mumble chatter during the SEAL sit-ups someone suggested these should be done in the water. I was sure that could be arranged if the rain came a little sooner. YHC was worried about getting the COP fouled up or better yet smoked just in 15 min. Smoked YES! It was also nice to close us out in the BOM. And most important an honor to lead the group. If I missed anything let ‘er rip in the comments.
